The World Bank has partnered with EMI (Earthquakes and Megacities Initiative) to develop a Case Study on the ongoing post-Yolanda recovery effort in the Philippines. The development of the Case Study supports the ongoing initiative being undertaken by the GFDRR, the European Union (EU) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in preparing a guide of sound practices for developing a Disaster Recovery Framework (DRF).
EMI will have its field investigation on the Management of Rehabilitation and Recovery Programs, Projects and Activities (PPAs) in the Yolanda-Affected Areas on August 12-14, 2014 in Leyte, Eastern Visayas, Philippines.
The field mission includes visits to local government agencies (City Government of Tacloban and Municipal Government of Tanauan) and field offices of national government agencies (DPWH, DSWD, DTI, HUDCC/NHA, NEDA, OCD and OPARR) located in the Yolanda-affected areas. These government agencies are identified as having vital roles and responsibilities/duties and functions in rehabilitation and recovery PPAs, especially on livelihood and housing/shelter.
The main goal of the field investigation is to reach a top-down and bottom-up understandings of the management of rehabilitation and recovery PPAs in the Yolanda-affected areas by various recovery actors from government agencies (foreign, national and local), inter-governmental organizations, civil society organizations (international and local) and private organizations. These understandings will support the development of the final draft of the case study through:
- validation of preliminary data and information gathered from the key informant interviews conducted with the main offices of national government agencies, inter-governmental organizations, civil society organizations, and private organizations;
- collection of additional ground data and information on the implementation of rehabilitation and recovery PPAs on livelihood and shelter/housing;
- processing of validated-preliminary and newly-collected data and information; and
- examination of disaster rehabilitation and recovery not only from the viewpoint of an outside observer (etic perspective) but more importantly within the viewpoint of the affected population (emic perspective).
