Originally published


The report was issues by OCHA Philippines on behalf of the humanitarian community and covers the period from 21 to 24 January 2012. The next report will be issued on or around 27 January 2012.

Highlights include:

  • Analysis of data collected during the second phase of joint multi-cluster rapid assessments is completed, allowing for finalisation of the revised action plan
  • Availability of land for relocation sites remains the biggest challenge for this response, provision of other vital assistance is largely dependent on the implementation of agreed shelter solutions
  • Nearly 230,000 people have benefited to date from emergency food assistance, which also continues to reach underserved communities in remote and inaccessible areas
  • Significant volume of debris continues to be scattered along farm lands and road sides of rural or suburban communities, restricting access to livelihoods
  • A Family-Tracing and Reintegration (FTR) database is being set up
