Shelter Cluster, July 2021


Following the withdrawal of the Ethiopian Defense Force from the major towns of Tigray on June 28, 2021 and combined with the declaration of a unilateral ceasefire by the Federal government, the political dynamics  have changed dramatically in Tigray Region. The interruption of essential services such as the blackout of electricity, telecommunications, and the internet throughout the Tigray region intensifies the already extreme humanitarian situation. The Shortages of cash and fuel in the Region significantly hampered partners' capacity to respond with full potential. Majority of the community in rural areas which were under active fighting for the last eight months are accessible however the cluster have very limited stocks in the Tigray region.

At the start of the year, the Cluster targeted 2.8 million; however, following the influx of IDPs in March and April, the Cluster increases its target to 3.9 million people, out of which 71 % are from Tigray. In the last six months, Cluster partners are able to reach 883,256 IDPs, returnees, and affected communities in Afar, Amhara, Benishangul, Oromia, Somali, SNNP, and Tigray regions; with the available resource, the Cluster will reach 42% of its target.
