  • By the end of 2021, the Shelter, Energy and NFI Cluster reached 656,424 beneficiaries through partner organizations. Activities covered 18 states and Capital District.  564 street solar lamps, 41 electric systems and 155 Refugee Housing Units were installed to support institutions and communities.  Also 13,932 solar lamps, 2,988 habitat kits, 1,852 family kits and 845 individual kits have been delivered to support the most vulnerable population.
  • The humanitarian response plan for 2021 integrated 24 projects from 25 organizations with a target population of 1,4 million people with a financial requirement of 45 million dollars.  According to Financial Tracking Services, US$ 6.7 million were received as funding, reaching 14,9% of the financial requirements for the sector.
  • During 2021, there were two assignments for the Venezuelan Humanitarian Fund to channel resources to partners to respond to the humanitarian needs.  The first assignment was made for US$ 3,5 million: 12 projects were financed with a focus on supporting women and elder population, including 3 projects presented by local organizations with components on Shelter, Energy and NFIs.  The second assignment was made for US$ 8 million with a focus on indigenous communities, back to school and people affected by armed conflicts: 18 projects were financed, including 8 projects presented with components on Shelter, Energy and NFIs.
  • In coordination with national authorities, the cluster held meetings during the year with main National Government Authorities.  Cluster met with the National Health Authorities identifying government priorities on COVID-19 vaccination, response to new COVID-19 variants and diseases related to health season.  In meetings with National Education Authorities the “back to school” plan was presented, as well as the cluster activities, identifying an important area of interventions to support “Mi Escuela Bella” (My Beautiful School) and sustainable energy solutions for schools. As for the National Energy Authorities, prioritized geographic areas for intervention without access to the national electric system were identified and socialized with partners.
  • The new Humanitarian Coordinator-Resident Coordinator assumed functions in the last quarter of 2021.  In the first meetings the need for an integrated and impactful response from different sectors in the humanitarian response was set as a priority.
