DEV.TV LATEST PRODUCTION WITH EURONEWS ON AIR THIS SATURDAY:
“PHILIPPINES: TYPHOON WARNING”

EURONEWS - SILENT DISASTERS


“Philippines: Typhoon Warning” is the first part of dev.tv new series about refugees and displaced persons around the world.
Last November the Super Typhoon Haiyan sliced through Tacloban and the central island provinces leaving untold devastation and misery in its wake.
Reporter Chris Cummins looks at the aftermath of Haiyan and the lesser, more localised storms, which hit the archipelago with increasing intensity and frequency.
The daily insecurity of poor, fragile communities is profound. As of early January 2014, it was estimated that between 4 and 5 million Filipinos were displaced within their own country.
Add to that the annual threat of tropical storms and typhoons and a government disaster preparedness, which is at best inadequate, you have a recipe for catastrophe.
