Daily Noon Briefing Highlights 27 November 2020

The Philippines

In support of the government-led response efforts to Typhoons Goni and Vamco, the UN and humanitarian partners in the Philippines released today a revised Humanitarian Needs and Priorities (HNP) plan.

The plan will focus on life-saving and time-critical recovery needs of people, especially women and girls, living in the hardest-hit provinces.

The revised plan is seeking US$52.6 million to assist 278,000 affected people with food, access to clean water, sanitation-hygiene facilities, emergency shelter, livelihood, health and early recovery from November 2020 to April 2021.

UN Under-Secretary General and Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock has recently approved an allocation of $3.1 million for the Philippines from the Central Emergency Response Fund.

Some $11.6 million has been successfully mobilized through the HNP to date.
