Around 3.2 million people are in need of Shelter and NFI assistance in Somalia. According to PRMN report, conflict and drought has displaced 874,000 people between January and December 2021.

The displaced are in urgent need of shelter and NFI assistance.
In December 2021, the Cluster Partners reached 17,158 people with non-food items (NFI) kits; and 17,763 people with shelter assistance. Cumulatively in 2021, the Shelter Cluster partners reached 281,606 individuals (12%) of 2.3 Million targeted with NFI assistance, and 216,918 individuals (9%) of the 2.4 million targeted with shelter assistance.
Gaps / challenges
- There are 5,600 NFI kits and 1,400 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.
