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 573,000 people between January and August 2021. Most of the displaced have arrived in Banadir, Baidoa, Jowhar, Beletweyne, Luuq, Doolow, Gaalkacy, Cadaado, and Xudur districts.The displaced are in urgent need of emergency shelter and NFI according to partner assessments. 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.

Response

In August 2021, the Cluster Partners reached 19,200 people with non-food items (NFI) kits; and 6,300 people with shelter assistance. Cumulatively in 2021, the Shelter Cluster partners have reached 199,205 individuals (8%) of 2.3 Million targeted with NFI assistance, and 130,807 individuals (6%) of the 2.4 million targeted with shelter assistance.

Gaps / challenges

  • There are 5,500 NFI kits and 2,000 shelter kits in stock stock countrywide. This is 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.
  • Funding is urgently required to respond to the displacements and to pre-position the NFI and shelter items for potential displacements in near future.
