Article - "Learning from Typhoon Haiyan: risk and resilience in emerging secondary cities"
30 April 2014
Published in The Global Urbanist
STEaPP Provost Fellow, Dr Lily Song,
writes in The Global Urbanist on the lessons learned by the "secondary" or "emerging" cities of the Philippines such as Tacloban, following the immense destruction caused by Typhoon Haiyan (known as Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines).
Lily discusses the measures that were taken immediately after the typhoon hit, and suggests approaches that policymakers from local, national and international governments should take to reduce vulnerability in secondary cities to ensure effective disaster response capacities at all levels of the community.
