“Lessons from a storm” is a documentary film featuring lessons from the post-Yolanda Tacloban recovery experience. According to UN-Habitat Country Programme Manager Cris Rollo “at the core of this documentary is the message that disaster also provides the opportunity to build back better”.

Produced by International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), the film describes the experiences, challenges, successes, and lessons of the Tacloban City Government as it moved from humanitarian response to the recovery and development phases after the disaster.
