  • By the end of November 2021, the Shelter, Energy and NFI Cluster reached 541,534 beneficiaries through partner organizations. Activities covered 17 states and Capital District.  551 street solar lamps, 30 electric systems and 137 Refugee Housing Units have been installed to support institutions and communities.  Also 13,580 solar lamps, 2,739 habitat kits, 1,849 family kits and 749 individual kits have been delivered to support the most vulnerable population.
  • The Resident/Humanitarian Coordinator participated in the cluster monthly meeting with partners organizations. The cluster presented its structure at national and subnational level, response areas and main challenges (with inputs from partner organizations). The R/HC highlighted the importance of having a multisectoral and joint approach during programming for next HRP to guarantee greater impact on people in need.
  • During November, the cluster participated in the strategic and technical review of project proposals for the Venezuela Humanitarian Fund (VHF) second contribution (USD 8 M). The fund will have three multisectoral focus areas: indigenous communities, assistance for children during the return to schools, and assistance to people affected in clashes zones. Partner organizations proposed 10 projects with shelter, energy and NFI interventions.
  • As part of multisectoral coordination efforts, the cluster together with WASH cluster, participated in the Education cluster monthly meeting where the 2022-2023 strategy was discussed. Complementary actions between three sectors were highlighted, emphasizing how shelter, energy and NFI interventions could be integrated in education programming.
  • The cluster took part in the presentation and workshop of the project InPlace organized by partner organization TECHO. Aligned with the cluster preparedness actions for natural disasters, the main objective of the project is to design a training program to understand the risk of a community facing natural disasters and to understand the differences between risk, threat, and vulnerability.
