Typhoon Bopha has destroyed vast swathes of banana crop in the Philippines, threatening a vital source of income for what is the world's third-largest exporter of the fruit.
The Philippines banana growing associations estimate that $300m (£186m) worth of the crop has been lost.
Farmers in particular are worried about their livelihoods.
