Following the massive destruction wrought by Typhoon Haiyan in early November 2013, humanitarian efforts continue to support thousands of affected people in the Philippines to rebuild their homes and livelihoods.

The latest assessment carried out by REACH aimed to understand remaining needs of the affected population, the differing needs of vulnerable groups and outcomes of the shelter sector response in the Philippines. The information gathered in this assessment is critical for the humanitarian community and particularly for the shelter sector, to understand gaps in current assistance, progress in reference to the Strategic Response Plan (SRP) and the extent to which the affected population is ready to move into the recovery phase.

The assessment was conducted by REACH as part of its partnership with the Global Shelter Cluster. It builds on a baseline Shelter and WASH Needs Assessment in December 2013, and a Shelter and WASH Sector Response Monitoring Assessment in March 2014
