The Department of Social Welfare and Development and The Asian Development Bank partnered to implement additional financing to restore livelihoods of Typhoon Yolanda victims through a Typhoon Yolanda Multi-Door Trust Fund (TYMTF). The additional financing will be used to scale up KC-NCDDP by supporting livelihood-related community-driven development sub-projects that contribute to the overall efforts of job creation and poverty reduction. It is consistent with the priority assigned by the TYMTF to restore livelihood in typhoon-affected communities in support of the Reconstruction Assistance for Yolanda (RAY) Plan of the Philippine government.
The objective of Kalahi-CIDSS National Community-Driven Development Livelihood and Entrepreneurship is to achieve improved access to services and infrastructure and participate in more inclusive local risk reduction and management planning, budgeting and implementation.
It covers Typhoon Yolanda affected and poor municipalities (377 areas) in regions IV-CALABARZON, VI, VII, VIII and CARAGA.
