The scale of the destruction caused when typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on 8 November 2013 was staggering. In the Shadow of the Storm reviews progress and challenges one year after Haiyan.


The scale of the destruction caused when typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on 8 November 2013 was staggering. The emergency response provided life-saving support to millions of people in the affected region. But the challenge now is to ensure that recovery efforts leave devastated communities better able to pursue diverse livelihoods, access safe shelter and withstand future shocks.
