CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, August 4 (PIA) -- A reporting system has been created by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to improve its data collection and dissemination during disasters.
From the Department of Agriculture
Barely two weeks after Typhoon Glenda devastated Bicol and several other areas in Luzon and Visayas, the Department of Agriculture (DA) launched on Friday (August 1) its rehabilitation blueprint for the agri-fishery sector in the region, starting with the distribution of initial assistance valued at nearly P6 million to affected farmers and fisherfolk in Sorsogon.
A. Situation analysis
Description of the disaster
Typhoon Rammasun (locally known as Glenda) made landfall over Lapu-Lapu in Albay province in the east of the Philippines in the late afternoon of Tuesday, 15 July. It crossed the Northern Capital Region (NCR) area on Wednesday morning of 16 July, pounding the Metro Manila area with strong winds and heavy rain, causing power outages and interrupting telecommunication lines in its path. Rammasun left the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on 17 July 2014 through the sea west of the country.
The CFSI Annual Report for 2013 gives a sketch of CFSI’s accomplishments and ongoing efforts in rebuilding lives in the Philippines, Myanmar, and Viet Nam. Throughout the succession of emergencies in 2013, CFSI carried out relief, early recovery, and reconstruction, as well as capacity strengthening with local partners and policy advocacy at the regional and global levels.
Increasing Israeli-Palestinian tensions culminated in Israel launching "Operation Protective Edge" in Gaza in early July (see our latest report and commentary). The assault, which started as an aerial campaign and was later extended to include ground operations, reportedly killed more than 1,400 Palestinians throughout the month while 64 Israelis were killed in clashes inside the Gaza Strip and by Hamas rocket fire. Several attempts at reaching a ceasefire agreement failed in July.
• During the first quarter of 2014, the global cereal price index decreased by 12% year-on-year, and slightly increased by 2% compared to the previous quarter.
• Real prices of maize were relatively stable and only 2% higher than the previous quarter of 2014.
Compared to the same period of the previous year, maize prices are low (-28%).
• Real prices of wheat increased significantly by 9% from Q1 to Q2-2014. More recently, for June, prices are down due to an increase in global supply and production.
Typhoon Rammasun, known locally as Typhoon Glenda, swept through the north of the Philippines on 16 July with winds of 180km and torrential rains. As the typhoon passed through the region it flattened thousands of homes, built largely of fragile materials like bamboo and thatch, as well as felling many of the region’s coconut trees. Coconut trees are the primary source of income for many of the region’s inhabitants who harvest them for copra, the raw material used to make coconut oil.
