Philippines Nutrition Cluster: Lessons learnt from the response to Typhoon Haiyan

Author: Aashima Garg, Rene Bucu and Rene Gerald Garela with ENN and the GNC
Year: 2015
Resource type: Case study

This case study is one of six case studies produced through a year-long collaboration in 2015 between ENN and the Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) to capture and disseminate knowledge about the Nutrition Cluster experiences of responding to Level 2 and Level 3 emergencies. They each provide very rich insights into the achievements of the cluster approach and the challenges of working in complex environments.

This case study highlights the fact that treatment of acute malnutrition is not always the most appropriate response to natural disasters and underlines the value of a broad situational analysis as a base for designing a nutrition response. It also identifies the importance of building capacity of systems as part of the response to support a well-defined transition process.
