2022-03 Factsheet - Nigeria
During the first quarter of 2022, the sector through its shelter and NFI partners was able to reach 6,295 HHs with NFI kits; 1,838 HHs with emergency shelter solutions; and 1,565 HHs with transitional shelter solutions.
During the reporting period, the number of people requiring shelter assistance has increased. This rise is driven by the destruction and the deterioration of shelter conditions in camps, camp-like settings, and host communities and compounded by the scale of new displacement, protracted displacement, return movements, and a minimal shelter response across Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe state. These conditions increase protection and public health risks, particularly when combined with overcrowding and inadequate access to Shelter and NFI responses across all need locations. These shelters and the NFI situation will continue to deteriorate due to living in unsustainable settlements with poor access to basic services. A total of 107,903 HHs according to the sector site tracker and DTM data are in dire need of an adequate shelter solution.
In addition, fire outbreaks occurred in 8 LGAs, damaging 3,853 shelters in total and resulting in a significant loss of properties for the affected IDPs, and immediate shelter and NFI assistance are required.
Lastly, insufficient funding has had a significant impact on the capacity of partners to implement shelter interventions which have led to an increase in substandard living conditions at the household level, unhygienic, overcrowded, and unprotected living space in existing shelters. As a result, the demand for new shelter units and the need for rehabilitation and maintenance of the existing shelter is increasing, with a shortage of resources to cover these needs across Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe states.
Within the period of January – March 2022, the sector through its shelter and NFI partners reached 6,295 HHs with NFI kits; 1,838 HHs with emergency shelter solutions; and 1,565 HHs with transitional shelter solutions. This brings the cumulative number of persons assisted with NFI to 3.6 percent out of 175,798 HHs targeted, and those assisted with shelter to 2.3 percent of the 148,421HHs targeted. Identified needs and remaining gaps: It is estimated that 327,993 HHs need shelter and NFI assistance
Gaps / challenges
- Inadequate stockpiles from sector or partners, for Shelter and NFI materials hamper any arising emergency response needs across BAY statesSector partners have also experienced constraints in procurement and logistical processes which delays shelter and NFI responses.
- Lack of adequate and usable land to provide shelter solutions remains the most insistent issue requiring joint advocacy by all humanitarian partners.
