Emergency employment, reconstruction and livelihood recovery

Community-based emergency employment, reconstruction and livelihood recovery in response to Typhoon Pablo (Bopha): Fact sheet

Typhoon Pablo (Bopha) has affected many parts of the Southern Philippines and damaged thousands of properties and livelihoods. Typhoon Pablo was the strongest to hit the area in decades. The ILO has initially mobilized its internal resources and has also sought the assistance of its development partners.

Strategies for sustainable livelihoods were vital, with social protection, climate change adaptation and disaster preparedness as key elements. The Livelihood Cluster has responded to help assess damages and losses on livelihoods and to coordinate efforts related to employment and livelihoods after Typhoon Pablo.
