Humanitarian Action Plan for the Santa Cruz Earthquake and Tsunami Response 2013


This Humanitarian Action Plan (HAP) was developed by the Government of Solomon Islands and its humanitarian and development partners, following the earthquake and tsunami that struck Santa Cruz Islands, Temotu Province in the Solomon Islands on 6 February 2013. It has a 4 months’ timeframe and aims to facilitate coordination of the humanitarian response and early recovery by documenting the response plan and identifying gaps and requirements.

The HAP is meant to be a concise response strategy to address acute needs based on available information and reasonable inference. The HAP outlines roles and responsibilities, specific cluster/sector response plans and activities, and when possible funding requirements. Response plans and activities can be revised as more information emerges in view of the haste in which this first edition has been consolidated.
