Research Grant from the International Institute for the Environment and Devleopment (IIED/DFID)

The likelihood of extreme weather events, such as that of Super Typhoon Haiyan which hit in 2013, killing thousands and disrupting the lives of millions, is predicted to become the “new normal”. More than two and a half years on from Typhoon Haiyan Tacloban, Ormoc and Palo were largely rebuilt, however, many thousands of people remained displaced, in temporary settlements, awaiting relocation.

This research looked in how local and international humanitarian actors interacted in the response to Typhoon Haiyan in Tacloban and Ormoc Cities, and Palo Municipality. This research was commissioned by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) as part of the Urban Crisis Learning Fund.
