A Sustainable Revival: Leyte After Yolanda, prepared for the non-profit organization Kusog Tacloban, examines a process and strategy for developing regional environmental standards and a neighborhood toolkit for “building back better” in Leyte Province, Philippines, after the devastation of Super Typhoon Yolanda in November 2013. The report details the findings of the authors’ research conducted remotely in the United States, and meetings with local officials, municipal planners, and residents during a ten-day trip to Leyte Province in June 2014. The report concludes with next steps and recommendations for the continued development and refinement of the draft materials with community feedback.
