Solutions for Self-Reliance

90% Of Their Infrastructure Was Destroyed. What This Community Did About It Is Beautiful.


The onslaught of Typhoon Haiyan left the people of Tacloban in the Philippines with no power lines and no electricity. What happened next is an inspiring example of a community coming together to solve their own problems.

This community managed to bounce back from a severe disruption with little outside help, and will actually increase its independence from the old and fragile power grid as a result. This is what resilience is all about.
