ADB's JFPR Grant 9175

JFPR Grant 9175-PHI: Emergency Assistance and Early Recovery for Poor Municipalities Affected by Typhoon Yolanda (ADB Project no. 47338)

In December 2013 ADB approved the grant of $20 million from the Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction (JFPR) to provide livelihood restoration and basic health services support for improved resilience to disasters and project management.

The project targets municipalities in Eastern Visayas (administrative region VIII, consisting of the provinces of Western Samar, Eastern Samar and Leyte). The municipalities were pre-selected and agreed on with NEDA, DSWD, NEA, DOH, DA, and DILG. All municipalities in Region VIII that meet the selection criteria for inclusion in the KALAHI-CIDSS project and also affected by the disaster are included. Under KALAHI-CIDSS, the municipalities were selected based on the poverty incidence per small area estimates (municipalities with higher poverty incidence than the national average were ranked and selected).
