Typhoon Haiyan

The response so far and vital lessons for the Philippines recovery.

Typhoon Haiyan not only killed thousands and made millions homeless. It also struck an already poor region, pushing families deeper into poverty, and making them more vulnerable to the next disaster.

Governments and individuals have acted generously. Despite serious challenges, the aid response is now expanding. But crucial gaps must still be urgently addressed. And as the long road to recovery begins, the Philippines authorities and the world must increase efforts to tackle poverty, and to reduce the growing risk of climate-related disasters that the Philippines and other countries will face.
