The paper incorporates observations made by the authors during fieldwork in Tacloban, Palo and Tanauan over a number of months in July/August 2014, late 2015 and early 2016. This paper addresses the logistical issues of conducting fieldwork as opposed to actual findings. They hope that an explanation of our experiences in the field will help other researchers to plan their budgets, configure appropriate research teams and consider issues that could distort the data that they gather. Their fieldwork is still in progress and these observations are preliminary.
