Jan 2014

FAO is warning that coconut farmers in the Philippines are in urgent need of assistance to recover their livelihoods, nearly three months after Typhoon Haiyan tore through the country. In this region alone, approximately 33 million coconut trees were damaged or destroyed and more than one million coconut farmers impacted. The Philippine Coconut Authority has estimated losses at $396 million. Coconuts are one of the most important crops in the Philippines. The country is the second largest coconut producer in the world, accounting for 26.6% of global production.
