The working group has been established at the beginning of the conflict and has been led by UNHCR on July 2014 under the first UN Security Resolution 2165. The Cross Border Operation has been clusterized on March 2015 and covers northwest Syria.

As per the 2020 HNO, 5.65M people are in need of Shelter, 3.42M people are in need of NFIs and are targeted by the Shelter and Non-Food Items sector through the Whole of Syria Secretariat.  

The Cluster convenes monthly meetings and technical working groups and addresses shelter and NFI needs by providing in-kind assistance as well as non-conditional/conditional cash or voucher. The cluster supports people in need within displaced, hosting and non-displaced populations through the provision of new arrival kits, construction material, emergency shelter kits during the emergency response and through the rehabilitation of private shelters and collective centers on the medium and longer-term.

Moreover, the Shelter and Non-Food Items Cluster have established a technical working group. Through this group, the Cluster capacitates the membership with the guidance on minimum standards and researches shelter alternative solutions.
