Description: Take a closer look at the Inter-Agency Humanitarian Evaluations (IAHEs) of the response to the crises in the Philippines (Typhoon Haiyan) in 2014 and in the Central African Republic and South Sudan in 2015. The video provides a brief overview of the situations that triggered the Level Three (L3) emergency responses, and presents the questions the IAHEs considered: how relevant and how effective were the responses? Were the expected results achieved? What was the level of engagement of national actors and governments? And which areas need to be strengthened?”
Independent evaluators and a member of the IAHE management group speak about the evaluation findings, as well as good practices and lessons learned identified.

Description: Typhoon Haiyan killed more than 6,000 people, and turned the lives of countless other upside down.
Never again do we want a disaster to like this to impact communities as much as it did. We are working the the Coalition of Services of the Elderly to implement a disaster risk reduction programme that ensures early warning systems are in place and that older men and women know exactly what to do when a typhoon hits, as well as in its aftermath.

The overall goal of the project is to support the Government of Philippines' education system through the enhancement of national and local capacities in response to immediate needs of secondary school children affected by emergency situations such as typhoons, earthquakes and/or floods.
A collaborative effort to revisit existing tools, systems and policies in addressing post-disaster stress among school children, particularly secondary students, was facilitated by this partnership with the Department of Education, their principals and teachers.
This project aims to strengthen the National Education System to respond to the immediate needs of secondary school students affected by emergency situations such as typhoons, earthquakes and/or floods through a collaborative effort to improve the quality of existing psychosocial training module in cooperation with Department of Education.

Description: In the Philippines, recurring natural hazards regularly cause heavy loss of lives and extensive damage to farmlands and properties in various regions, depriving the affected residents of their assets and livelihoods. Since 1996, the European Commission has provided funding to support numerous projects under its Disaster Preparedness Programme (DIPECHO) – with the aim of enhancing the resilience of the most vulnerable communities in the Philippines.
This video highlights some of the most successful initiatives implemented in different localities across the country over the past ten years. From the implementation of early warning systems to the introduction of resilient farming techniques, the projects have equipped residents in the most-at-risk areas with the means to better cope with natural hazards and have thus helped to not only save lives, but also better preserve assets and livelihoods in the face of recurring typhoons, landslides or volcanic eruptions.
