MANILA, June 19 -- President Benigno S. Aquino III led a special Cabinet meeting in MalacaƱang on Thursday to tackle housing reconstruction in Eastern Visayas, which was devastated by Typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan) in November 2013.

"National Housing Authority General Manager Chito Cruz was asked to present an update on Haiyan and other housing programs," Communication Secretary Herminio Coloma, Jr. said in a statement.


According to the Cabinet Secretary's Office, since Thursday's meeting is a special, and not a regular, Cabinet meeting, not all Cabinet members were required to attend.

President Aquino approved in October last year the P167.9-billion Comprehensive Rehabilitation and Recovery Plan (CRRP), solidifying the government’s commitment to rebuild areas in Eastern Visayas devastated by the super typhoon.

The recovery plan focuses on long-term and sustainable efforts to reduce vulnerabilities and strengthen the capacities of communities to cope with future hazard events.

The P167.9 billion will be used to restore infrastructure, settlements and basic community facilities, livelihood and the resilience of vulnerable communities.

The amount is broken down into P35.1 billion for infrastructure; P26.4 billion for social services; P75.7 billion for resettlement; and P30.6 billion for livelihood.
