Super Typhoon Goni (Rolly) Humanitarian Needs and Priorities Plan

The plan has been developed based on preliminary assessment findings and early estimates of people in need to enable humanitarian partners to kick-start immediate life-saving and protection activities. The cluster operational delivery plans are based on common planning assumptions, which will be reviewed as more complete information about the typhoon’s impact becomes available.

The humanitarian response in the Philippines is led and coordinated by the Government through the NDRRMC and related emergency response mechanisms. The HCT - composed of UN agencies, international NGOs, international and national NGO consortiums, Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, donor representatives and the private sector supports these government-led structures. The Humanitarian Coordinator and the HCT are responsible for the implementation of the activities outlined in this plan. The HCT is supported at the operational level by the Inter-Cluster Coordination Group (ICCG) comprising the coordinators of 14 humanitarian clusters and sub-clusters, representatives of OCHA, Philippine Red Cross, international and national NGO networks, private sector, and those leading thematic working groups. The HCT cluster leads support the government cluster leads in coordinating the assistance provided by the humanitarian community.
