Upland Forest Rehabilitation Project



The project of rehabilitating the 150 hectares forest located in Badiangan, Ajuy Iloilo which was damaged by typhoon Haiyan will help revitalize the livelihood of the 295 affected families who have been depending on the forest resources. The scheme of sub-contracting the disaster victims in planting the seedlings and forestry management will help them in their immediate recovery hence improve their quality of life.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

On November 8, 2013, the typhoon Haiyan severely devastated the central part of the country including the Municipality of Ajuy in the Province of Iloilo. Said to be the "Mother of all typhoons," it created a massive and immense damage in the infrastructures, forestry, agricultural lands and other sources of income of the people who are living in the coastal and upland areas. Having a hand to mouth existence even before the storm surges, the residents are now struggling to survive.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project's ultimate goal is to revitalize the area damaged by the typhoon through establishing a model upland rehabilitation project. It will restore the devastated 150 hectares forest using local species of seedlings and fruit bearing trees; improve the quality of life of the victims through the provision of jobs in seedlings and forestry management; and enhance the awareness of the public in mitigating the impact of natural disasters through public communication.

Potential Long Term Impact

It will benefit the 225 household families who were affected by the typhoon. At least one member of every household family will be provided with jobs in the seedlings and forestry management. In the long run, the project will secure water supply for agriculture and for household purposes. The fruits can be sold to the market and will serve as an additional income generating source of the community people. The tipolo lumber can be used by fishermen in building their boats to be used for fishing.
