The Philippines: From 27 to 31 January, the Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator led a high-level CERF mid-term review mission organized by OCHA to Albay and Catanduanes. He was joined by Ambassadors of Canada and Germany, representatives of UNICEF, IOM, WFP, OCHA as well as implementing partners.

In the aftermath of Super Typhoon Goni, the United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) approved an allocation of $3.1 million (PhP 150 million) for the Philippines to provide life-saving assistance to 55,000 most affected people in Albay and Catanduanes. The funding allocation to UNICEF, IOM and the WFP allowed the three agencies to prioritize water supplies, sanitation services, hygiene, emergency shelter and food to address timecritical needs.
