The CDAC Network Learning Review of the humanitarian response to Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the Philippines in November 2013, examines initiatives aimed at improving communication with communities, and the coordination of these initiatives.

The review captures examples of good practice, gaps and suggestions for improvement in ‘communication with communities’ programming and coordination, and makes recommendations to OCHA (who funded the review), the CDAC Network and donors.

The review acknowledges that a stronger commitment by humanitarian agencies to address communication and information needs was seen after Typhoon Haiyan than in previous disasters. However, efforts are still required to ensure the consistency and coordination of ‘communication with communities’ approaches and to make sure that information and communication needs of affected people are considered a priority.
