The funding gaps have impeded the implementation of the intervention strategy designed by humanitarian partners in the Philippines in coordination with the government

Critical sectors and population groups, as identified in the initial appeal and as confirmed in this revised Flash Appeal include:

- 1,700,000 people who are displaced from areas submerged in floodwater

- 500,000 farmers in northern Luzon who have lost 100 % of their livelihood

- Children, who constitute approximately 44% of the affected population

Following the government's request, and based on improved assessment data, the Revised Flash Appeal that was launched on November 18, 2009, covers Regions I, II, III, IV-A, V, NCR and CAR representing caseload of approximately 4,200,000 people in need. Whereas, the original Flash Appeal was planned for 2,507,000 people only

In line with the policy to improve needs analysis and response in revised flash appeals, activities were planned according to the following categories:

- Life saving activities in flooded areas - 1,700,000 persons

- Life saving activities in other affected areas - 500,000 persons

- Resumption of livelihoods in flooded areas - 1,770,000 persons

- Resumption of livelihoods in other affected areas - 2,500,000 persons

Special attention has been focused to the most vulnerable sections of the affected population including children, women, elderly and people living in areas that were still submerged. The revised Flash Appeal was planned to run from November 2009 to March 2010. The international humanitarian community, including NGOs, IFRC, IOM and UN agencies are seeking $143,774,080 to address the immediate and early recovery needs of approximately 4,200,000 people affected by the flood and storms to support the government
