The Philippines – Super Typhoon Goni 2020

The Philippines – Super Typhoon Goni 2020
Nov 2020

Super Typhoon Goni, locally referred to as Rolly, made landfall on 1 November 2020 in the Philippines, roughly following the same path as Typhoon Molave that hit just days earlier. Super Typhoon Goni severely affected Albay and Cataduanes provinces, negatively impacting their economies, which were already reeling as a result of the coronavirus 2019 pandemic. The typhoon damaged rice, corn, abaca and other high-value crops. It also destroyed boats, fishing gear, agricultural equipment and other livelihood resources, significantly affecting those who are dependent on farming and fishing as their primary or secondary source of livelihood. As part of the United Nations appeal, and working closely with the government, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations aims to support affected farmers and fishers by helping them re‑establish their livelihoods and improving their food security and nutrition.
