On the 19th of January 2024, Shelter Cluster held its first meeting with partners in the Northwest, Southwest, West, and Littoral regions. While many of the partners were winding up 2023 projects, at that time, they reported to have not finalized 2024 budget discussions with their main donors.

The shelter cluster annual report for 2023 was finalized in January 2024. The overall achievements indicate to have assisted 33.8% of the target which was 93,509 out of 276,620 persons in the Northwest, Southwest, West, and Littoral regions. The low achievements for 2023 were basically linked to insufficient funds, inaccessibility to some divisions due to insecurity, poor infrastructure and season



Coverage against targets

Need analysis

In January 2024, the protracted armed conflicts continued to cause the displacement of close to 1050 individuals from their homes into the bushes of uncompleted buildings or neighboring communities across the Northwest and Southwest regions. The different events cited below present the different shelter needs of the people who have been displaced.

According to the IOM emergency tracking tool (ETT), an estimated 300 individuals in 50 households and 775 returnees in 170 households were forced to flee their villages in the Southwest Manyu and Fako divisions.

On the other hand, through OCHA, Shelter cluster partners were urged to respond to the incident in Malende, Mile 40, Yoke, and Muyuka in the Fako Division where about 400 IDPs were assessed in need of shelter and NFI among other needs of priority through IRC Rapid Needs Assessment report.

Gaps / challenges

   1. Physical access constraints due to poor road networks have delayed the implementation of some shelter activities in the Northwest and Southwest regions.

2. In January 2024, many partners had not received funds from their donors and hence could not rapidly respond to incidents needing urgent responses.

3. Shelter Cluster has also struggled to do price monitoring, which has limited the Shelter Cluster from updating its technical guidelines and standard prices since August 2022
