Coverage against targets

Need analysis

Around 3.2 million people are in need of Shelter and NFI assistance in Somalia. According to PRMN report, conflict and drought has displaced over 450,000 people between January and May 2021. Most of the displaced have arrived in Banadir, Bay, Middle Shabelle, Gedo, Hiraan and Lower Shabelle regions. The displaced are in urgent need of emergency shelter and NFI according to partner assessments.


  • Cumulatively in 2021, the Shelter Cluster partners have reached 147,752 individuals (6%) of 2.3 Million targeted with NFI assistance, and 112,129 individuals (5%) of the 2.4 million targeted with shelter assistance.


Gaps / challenges

  • There are limited NFI kits in stock countrywide with no shelter kits in stock. The available stock and stock in pipeline are not sufficient to respond to the shelter and NFI needs of the newly displaced population as well as the needs of the IDPs living in protracted situation.
  • Additional funding is urgently required to respond to the displacements and to pre-position the NFI and shelter items for potential displacements in near future.
