The Organization will do everything it can to support the Government of the Philippines in the reconstruction process and to build resilience, Graziano da Silva said.

FAO called for $24 million for immediate interventions in fisheries and agriculture as part of the UN-coordinated humanitarian Flash Appeal launched today.
