This Humanitarian Action Plan (HAP) has been developed by the Government of Fiji following the damaging impact of Tropical Cyclone Evan on parts of western and northern Fiji on 16 and 17 December 2012. The HAP has a 3 month timeframe and aims to facilitate coordination of the humanitarian response by documenting the response plan and identifying gaps/requirements for the response. A revision is envisaged for the first week of February 2013 which will further inform the recovery and rehabilitation process and programs as planned by Government and partners.
The HAP is a response strategy to address acute needs with a common planning horizon. It outlines roles and responsibilities, specific cluster/sector response plans and activities, and when possible funding requirements. The HAP is a concise document based on available information and reasonable inference, focusing on humanitarian needs over an agreed planning horizon, typically three months. Response plans and activities can be revised as more information emerges in view of the speed with which this first version has been consolidated.
