After nine months of response in close partnership with national authorities, significant progress has been made in meeting the needs of vulnerable people affected by last November’s Typhoon Haiyan (locally-known as Yolanda). Of the 45 indicators tracked in the third and final Periodic Monitoring Report (PMR), 30 show achievements of greater than 50 per cent, and 15 of these indicators have reached or surpassed the targets established in the Haiyan Strategic Response Plan (SRP).
Only 15 indicators show progress of below 50 per cent. These are due largely to reporting issues, funding constraints within the sector, and activities taking place later in the programme cycle that are more recovery-oriented. Due to the early closure of the SRP, some projects within the plan are ongoing, and activities in pursuit of targets are still underway in many sectors.
