Gaps / challenges

  • Funding is urgently required to respond to the displacement and to pre-position NFI and shelter items for potential displacements in near future.
  • Shelter cluster has been underfunded affecting humanitarian shelter response in timely and effective manner.
  • Due to overwhelming shelter needs, lack of security of tenure and severe underfunding, the shelter and NFI needs of the displaced people are largely unmet.
