    The Philippines – Super Typhoon Rai 2021
    Urgent call for assistance
    2021
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Super Typhoon Rai, locally referred to as “Odette” was the fifteenth storm to hit the Philippines and the strongest in 2021. Super Typhoon Rai made nine landfalls on 16–17 December 2021, severely disrupting the livelihoods of vulnerable farmers and fishers and compounding the impacts of other climate-induced shocks and the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic. Beyond its immediate impacts, Super Typhoon Rai adversely affected the food security of households who depend on farming and fishing for their primary or secondary source of livelihoods as their productive capacities decreased and their incomes were disrupted. Consequently, vulnerable categories in the most affected areas such as children, pregnant and lactating women and the elderly are evidently at higher risk of malnutrition. It is therefore imperative to urgently support recovery and rehabilitation efforts targeting vulnerable smallholder farmers and fishers, especially in communities that are predominantly depending on agriculture and fisheries for their livelihoods. The document provides an overview of FAO's urgent requirements in response to the impact of Super Typhoon Rai 2021 on vulnerable farmers and fishers in the Philippines.
