In 2013, Typhoon Haiyan devastated large areas of the Philippines, destroying vital sources of livelihoods for many rural households. This project aims to rebuild livelihoods through cash grants for fishers to help them to revive the aquaculture and sea fisheries sectors in the worst affected areas of Eastern Samar and Leyte. Specifically, the project seeks to rebuild mud crab, blue crab, milkfish and tilapia aquaculture as well as seaweed farming within local communities and assist with links to potential markets for the produce.
