Coverage against targets

Need analysis

Around 3.2 million people need shelter and NFI assistance in Somalia. According to PRMN report, conflict and drought has displaced over 537,000 people between January and July 2021. The IDPs have arrived mostly in Banadir, Baidoa, Jowhar, Beletweyne, Luuq, Doolow, and Xudur districts. They urgently need emergency shelter and NFI according to partner assessments.


Cumulatively in 2021, the Shelter Cluster partners have reached 180,005 individuals (8%) of 2.3 Million targeted with NFI assistance, and 124,507 individuals (5%) 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.
