Farmers and fishers in the Philippines are well on the road to recovery and building more resilient livelihoods, a year after Typhoon Haiyan hit the Asian country.

The typhoon, one of the most powerful storms ever recorded, not only killed thousands of people, but also devastated the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands more.

There was widespread destruction of crop fields, coconut trees, fishing nets and boats.

Alessia Anibaldi, Emergency Operations Manager for the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), has been telling Sandra Ferrari about how communities have responded over the last year.
