Typhoon Yolanda (internationally known as Haiyan), the strongest typhoon ever to hit the Philippines, made landfall in Central Philippines on 8 November 2013. A total of 16 million people were affected. Given the scale of the disaster and the humanitarian impact, President Aquino issued Presidential Proclamation No 682 on 11 November 2013, indicating that the country would accept international assistance. As a result, domestic authorities and international responders mounted a massive emergency operation. This review was carried out from 6 to 16 May 2014 by the Disaster Response Dialogue to capture lessons from the ongoing humanitarian response in terms of cooperation between the Government of the Philippines and international responders.
