Manila, Philippines – Naapektuhan ng bagyong Odette ang nasa 2.2 milyong manggagawa sa isinagawang rapid impact assessment conducted ng International Labor Organization (ILO).

“Amongst the regions hardest hit were Western Visayas that saw 21% (672,000) of the workforce affected, Eastern Visayas with 19% (343,000); and Central Visayas with 18% (643,000),” lahad ng ILO.

“Meanwhile, in Caraga, nearly one-third of the region’s entire workforce (363,000) was impacted.”

“Following the onslaught of the typhoon, the United Nations called the impact ‘a crisis within a crisis’ since the country is barely recovering from the pandemic, and currently addressing a spike in cases,” dagdag pa rito.

Sinabi ng ILO na kasama sa kanilang assessment kung ano ang pinakaapekadong sektor.

Magsasagawa rin ang ILO ng field assessment at mobilize resources upang makapagsimula ang  rebuilding efforts.

“This will be done in coordination with the government through the Department of Labor and Employment, workers and employers’ organizations, indigenous peoples, affected communities, and key partners. ILO will also assist affected regions under some of its existing projects for a human-centered recovery through decent work and sustainable livelihood.” RNT/FGDC
