The Philippines: The Building Back Better in Tacloban Project

The Building Back Better in Tacloban: Post Haiyan Community Rehabilitation Project was designed as a 13-month project supporting the community rebuilding efforts of residents of Area 4 (Barangays 62 and 62-A) in Tacloban City who were affected by the devastation brought to the Eastern Visayas region of the Philippines by Super Typhoon Haiyan. The project sought to help Area 4 to “build back better” through improved shelter and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) facilities, complemented by integrated Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Protection mechanisms.
