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.
