Guidelines for Adapting TPM in the context of COVID-19

International Advisory, Products and Systems (i-APS) has been awarded a contract by Plan Inter-
national USA to perform real-real time verification for a 17-month project supporting the neighbor-
hood rebuilding efforts of residents of Area 4 (Barangays 62 and 62-A) in Tacloban City titled
“Building Back Better in Tacloban: Post Haiyan Community Rehabilitation” Project that was de-
signed in response to the devastation by Super Typhoon Haiyan in November 2013.

The project sought to help Area 4 to “build back better” through improved shelter and water, sanitation and
hygiene (WASH) facilities complemented by integrated Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Protection mecha-
nisms.

To distill and document positive learnings and lessons learned from the project and draw out both good practic-
es and areas for improvement. The study will cover the following themes

•     Follow-on activities in Area 4 and other areas of Tacloban City.

•      Urban Shelter & Settlements (S&S) program and relationship between “squatters” (non-tenured residents),
landowners/landlords, City Hall, and neighborhood residents.

•      Reasons for over-fulfillment of assistance.

•      Shelter & Settlements assistance dimensions.

•      Lessons and Good Practices for Shelter and Settlements S&S in a space-constrained urban area.

•      Donation 30 total rebuilds to Villa Plan.

•      Beneficiary response to 2-story T-shelters.

•      Collaboration with Eastern Visayas State University (EVSU) on DRR-Settlements infrastructure mitigation work.

•      Performance of mitigation work in recent storms.

•      Integrating hardware (Shelter + WASH improvements) with software (Protection and DRR programming).

•      Beneficiary satisfaction/complaints/suggestions for improvement, related to (a) Plan engage-
ment, interaction with target neighborhoods; and (b) project improvements to neighborhood.

•      The organizational experience of Plan.
