Post-Disaster Response, Rehabilitation, and Reconstruction

ADB supports the disaster relief, early recovery, and reconstruction activities of its developing member countries. Between August 1987 and December 2013, ADB approved $6.4 billion for these purposes, equivalent to 33% of its total disaster risk management related assistance over the same period. Most recently, in 2013 it provided $0.9 billion to the Philippines in response to Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda.

Through its emergency assistance loan program, ADB provides fast-tracked support to help members rebuild high-priority physical assets and restore economic, social and governance activities in the aftermath of disasters.
