Coverage against targets

Need analysis

Around 3.2 million people are in need of Shelter and NFI assistance in Somalia. According to PRMN report, conflict and drought has displaced 730,000 people between January and October 2021. Most of the displaced have arrived in Banadir, Dhuusamarreeb, Baidoa, Beletweyne, Jowhar, Luuq, Doolow, Gaalkacy, Xudur, Cadaado, Saakow, Hobyo, Afgooye and Afmdhow districts. The displaced are in urgent need of shelter and NFI assistance.


In October 2021, the Cluster Partners reached 24,296 people with non-food items (NFI) kits; and 40,900 people with shelter assistance. Cumulatively in 2021, the Shelter Cluster partners have reached 240,307 individuals (10%) of 2.3 Million targeted with NFI assistance, and 174,249 individuals (8%) of the 2.4 million targeted with shelter assistance.

Gaps / challenges

  • There are 7,000 NFI kits and 6,000 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.
