Forty two days after the typhoon struck landfall, affecting over 14 million people, 4 million remain displaced and, according to the World Food Programme (WFP), 2.5 million still require food assistance. Following damage, loss and needs assessments, the Government of the Philippines yesterday published a US$8 billion strategic plan for reconstruction in the affected areas.
On 18 December, the Government published the RAY (Reconstruction Assistance on Yolanda), a US$8 billion reconstruction plan for those areas devastated by the typhoon. The UN Strategic Response Plan (SRP), worth US$791 million, is aligned with RAY.
The SRP was launched on 16 December as part of the global Consolidated Appeal Process. Within the SRP, WFP is requesting US$112 million in food security and agriculture, nutrition as well as logistics and emergency telecommunications.
