CAFOD Grants EcOWEB PhP7.42M for Yolanda Response

To address the identified capacity gaps of people’s organizations and their local coordinating structures in enabling households affected by Typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan) to effectively recover from the impact of the disaster, the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD) of the UK and Wales is providing EcoWEB PhP7.42M to serve as a counterpart funding to the partnership project of EcoWEB with the Department of Agriculture (DA) of Region 8 and partner local government units.

The project aims to hasten the recovery while reducing the vulnerability of the Haiyan-affected communities by enhancing the capacity of community-based and the local structures of agri-fisheries organizations to develop and manage sustainable and resilient livelihoods and to partner with and access resources from the government and other agencies. This shall also provide some interventions to improve the capacity of local government units in building resiliency of their respective localities and in supporting initiatives of communities for building back better their communities damaged by the disaster.  

The project is comprised of 3 major components: 1) Local capacity building and accessing resources from the government; 2) Building resilient livelihoods; and 3) Building resiliency of communities.
