Interactive Dashboard

Nearly 2.6 million individuals remain in need of shelter and NFI support, 7 per cent higher than in 2020. Among them, 1 million individuals are in acute need. Shelter and NFI needs are concentrated mainly in 14 districts and have not significantly changed compared to previous years.
