24 September 2015

When Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda hit the Philippines in 2013, Concern responded to the emergency. This is the evaluation of that response.

The evaluation found that the response remained highly relevant to the needs of the affected populations throughout the duration of implementation. Within these areas, the interventions targeted the poorest of those affected (predominantly island communities) and engaged in an extensive and effective process to validate the damage assessment reports completed by the local government. Programme components covered the highest priority needs of shelter and NFIs initially, before building on communities own significant resilience through appropriate and extensive livelihoods recovery and disaster risk reduction components.
