    Palompon, Leyte, Philippines – The road to recovery has not been easy for 52 year old Marcelina Calvez and her husband who have been farming this area of the Philippines for more than 30 years. They have seven children and, like many coconut farmers, they do not own their land. Even prior to Typhoon Haiyan (known locally as “Yolanda”), the half hectare of coconuts they were farming was not enough to meet the family’s needs. “After Yolanda, we lost our livelihood but we still had debts to pay,” said Marcelina. “The hardest part was trying to earn money to feed my family.” Restoring livelihoods and building the resilience of coconut farmers was a paramount consideration in the aftermath of the typhoon and this meant providing farmers with a stable source of alternative livelihood that could be sustained even with limited land resources and capital.

    In December 2021, Super Typhoon Rai (local name: Odette) barreled through the Philippines, significantly affecting 11 out of 15 regions in the country and about 918 877 families. In line with this, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), in coordination with government partners, conducted a rapid damage and needs assessment in selected affected areas in the Eastern Visayas and Caraga regions to understand the impact of the super typhoon on the livelihoods of smallholder farmers and fishers, as well as inform partner government agencies’ and FAO’s own response and recovery plans and programs.
