OCHA has published Philippines: Typhoon Haiyan Situation Report No.30 (as of 7 January 2014). Click through to download the full report. The highlights:
• Response gaps in shelter assistance continue to be a pressing issue; more funding is urgently required to scale up activities.
• Recent heavy rain and wind add to the urgency of providing medium- to longer-term reconstruction materials.
• Schools re-opened on 6 January despite some still being used as evacuation centres; an urgent solution is required. While the distribution of school materials is being scaled up to coincide with the official re-opening of schools, gaps remain in the availability of learning spaces.
• Some isolated people living in highland areas, especially in Panay Island and northern Negros Occidental, have received limited assistance to date. There is risk of a deteriorating food security situation in these areas.
