 Highlights

The objective of the Pacific Shelter Cluster is to support a coherent and effective humanitarian shelter response following disaster events in Pacific Island Countries, underpinned by preparedness and capacity building initiatives. The regional coordination team led by International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) in accordance with its global shelter cluster mandate, prioritises provision of support to country-level clusters across the Pacific according to their specific needs. Much of this support is provided to National Governments who are responsible for humanitarian response in their countries.

In the first half of 2020, the Pacific Shelter Cluster responded to requests from national governments to support national shelter clusters with the coordination of three country-level emergency responses in Vanuatu and Fiji reaching around 15,530 households (77,770 people) with emergency shelter and essential household items, and technical assistance in terms of safe shelter awareness, trainings and workshops. Recovery shelter guidance was developed as a part of the TC Harold response, seeking to link humanitarian shelter with longer term recovery processes. The Pacific Shelter Cluster also inputted into the Pacific Humanitarian Team (PHT) COVID-19 Response Plan which covers 14 Pacific Island Countries, and continue to support preparedness initiatives detailed below.
