Rebuilding fishing communities and fisheries

Post-Haiyan reconstruction in the Philippines

Fishing and coastal communities in the Philippines are among the poorest and the most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and the risk of disasters. Women are central to fishery activities, and particularly vulnerable to the effects of Typhoon Haiyan on their livelihoods. This paper outlines the immediate recovery needs and gaps identified in the reconstruction efforts, and makes recommendations drawn from the fishing communities themselves. The paper also highlights policy and programme issues that must be addressed for effective, inclusive and sustainable recovery and rehabilitation efforts.
