- There are approximately 1,000 IDPs waiting for flights and assistance at the Tacloban Airport. People waiting at the airport are in need of water and food.
-The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the police force are securing the airfield but have not made it out into the city.
-The IDPs in Tacloban are using areas throughout the city as temporary shelter. Approximately 4,000 people at the convention center. Most of the people at the temporary shelter have yet to receive aid.

Further security information in the attached report of 13 November.

Please find attached UNDAC Team 3 Reports from Panay Island, Western Visayas (14 and 15 Nov).

The UNDAC team also reports that land travel is now OK in Panay island (Region VI, Capiz, Aklan, Antique, Iliilo). Airports are open. Thus, logistics are not proving to be a major challenge.

For international response to Panay island (Capiz, Iloilo, etc), a coordination center is up and running in ROXAS Provincial Hall (3rd floor). UNICEF, SAVE, WFP, IFRC, WHO, ACF, IOM, Canadian DART, World Vision, Plan, MSF are there.

PDRRMC is located in the same building.

The map (MapAction) provides a snapshot of the state of infrastructure in North Iloilo and Capiz (as of 14 Nov).

UNDAC Team 4 report on BUSUANGA (13 November):

Current Situation (as of 14:00 13 November, based on the information from MDRRMC, Municipality of Coron)
Dead: 11 / Injured: 18
Individuals affected: 31,104
Household damage - Partially damaged: 5,110, Totally damaged: 3,287
(Household as of Dec 2012: 10,161, Population: 45,416)

Busuanga airport resumed its operation, and some private jets transported relief goods. Additional relief goods such as water, food, and cloths were donated this morning to the Coron Relief Center, but the volume is still not sufficient. The incoming goods are well managed at the Coron Relief Centre and delivered by the staff and volunteers of the MDRRMC. Water and electricity have not been recovered yet in Busuanga, and so the needs for water, electric generators and fuel remain very high. There is information that 400 drums of fuel have arrived at Busuanga port yesterday, but it did not reach the Relief Centre.

The area has food (rice only) for the next 2 days, however, aid should arrive tomorrow and be transported directly to the operation centre at Busuanga proper. The town has no bottled water, and is using water from local stream. There are concerns on the quality of this water. Sanitation will become a significant issue within the next 5 days, but more pit latrines will be built. There is no hospital, and municipal health officer provides basic and immediate medical support. They have requested medicine for anti-biotics and oral hydrating salt. Medication for Coron hospital is arriving, and will be distributed today.

Aid distribution center at Coron Coliseum provides distribution of relief items for all barangays. The relief centre is becoming well stocked and distribution is conducted orderly and efficiently. Vehicles from Busuanga proper will arrive at the distribution point tomorrow morning. This should provide to additional days of supplies.

UNDAC team 4 completed their mission on 15 November with the local management authority adequately resourced and functioning effectively.

Security (last update: 21-Nov-2013 09:22 by ERCC, OCHA-Geneva)
Update from the UNDAC Team Leader and Deputy Humanitarian Coordinator a.i.:
The security situation in the affected area is good. Reports of Police and Military not having made it into the city reported on the VOSOCC are out of date. Police and Military coverage is good. As assistance reaches the population the risk of there being any violent incidents has shrunk to negligible. Tacloban, Samar and Leyte are currently secure working environments for humanitarian staff.

OCHA media monitoring (21 Nov)

Aid groups get strong response to Philippines appeals
The United Nations relief agency has elicited a strong response so far to an emergency financing appeal for overcoming the Philippines typhoon disaster, receiving nearly half the amount requested in the week since the effort was begun, a humanitarian aid database reported in an update on Wednesday. The database, the Financial Tracking Service, said donors had provided $129 million of the $301 million requested on Nov. 12 in a “flash appeal” issued by Valerie Amos, the under secretary general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief coordinator, who has spent most of the past week in the Philippines helping lead the aid effort. According to the Foreign Aid Transparency Hub, a Philippines government portal that tallies overseas contributions, the total amount pledged for typhoon relief so far, including the sum raised in Ms. Amos’s emergency financing appeal, is nearly $320 million. (NYT)

Philippines struggle to keep typhoon aid, donations graft-free
As millions of dollars pour in for more than four million left homeless by a typhoon in the central Philippines, authorities are grappling with a familiar problem - how to stop fraudulent claims and prevent greedy politicians taking advantage. Nearly 13 billion pesos ($298 million) in cash and relief goods have so far been pledged by countries and donor groups to an overwhelmed government that was criticised for its slow response in the first few days after disaster struck. The World Bank and the Asian Development Bank have committed a total of more than $1 billion in grants and emergency loans to support reconstruction and relief efforts. Add to that the millions of pesos raised by the private sector, with Filipinos working across the globe gathering friends for fund-raising activities, and you have a lucrative target for scammers and unscrupulous public officials in one of the most corrupt countries in East Asia. The Philippines comes in at 105 out of 176 countries in Transparency International's corruption perceptions index, with the cleanest country, New Zealand, at number one. "It is a big issue in the international aid community, especially insofar as international NGOs are concerned," said Budget Secretary Florencio Abad, when asked about bogus aid agencies and scams.

Custom focal point:
Custom facilitation: The Govt will use the Cebu airport as the main entry point for international relief assistance.

To facilitate rapid movement of international donations and relief goods, the Bureau of Customs of the Philippines directed the District Collectors at the Ports of Tacloban, Cebu and Ninoy Aquino International Airport to activate a One Stop Shop in their respective ports to expedite the processing and release of all donated relief goods.

The one stop shop shall be available 24/7 and responsible for coordinating with other government agencies concerned in the processing and documentation of donated relief goods, articles and equipment to facilitate release within 24 hours from filing of import entry.

The documentary requirements for the release of donated relief goods have been streamlined and simplified. To facilitate their immediate release, only a letter of intent to donate goods, bill of Lading or airway bill, and a packing list and/or a commercial invoice among other documents as may be required, are needed.

The order is, however, clear that all donations shall only be to the account of the Department of Social Welfare and development (DSWD) and/or any DSWD registered relief organization.

Attached (right column) are the procedures as well as the official communication received from the Government.

Donors must inform the intended recipient of the incoming shipment. It would be appreciated if OCHA be copied on all correspondence with the customs administration (1) so that we may compile the data on who is sending what where (2) to assist you if you have any problems with customs procedures.

Attached (right column) also the procedures on expedited release of foreign donations in times of calamities (published on 12 Nov 2013 by the Customs administration)
Immigration: The country has given its agreement to waive the visas for humanitarian workers deployed in response to Tayphoon Haiyan. Ms. Missie Enriquez (09198635998, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
