Humanitarian Program Cycle

The Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) plan is prepared for a protracted or sudden onset emergency that requires international humanitarian assistance. The plan articulates the shared vision of how to respond to the assessed and expressed needs of the affected population. The development of a strategic response plan is a key step in the humanitarian programme cycle and is carried out only when the needs have been understood and analyzed through the Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO) or other joint needs assessment and analysis processes.

Currently, the Shelter Cluster’s main target population is 1.4 million of the 2.2 million persons in need if humanitarian shelter assistance. The SC strategy has three main objectives: Emergency, Stability and Sustainable Solutions. Capacity-building and a coordination component has been embedded within all of the pillars.

The current HRP (2020) humanitarian appeal seeks to provide integrated life-saving and resilience-strengthening assistance to people affected by the protracted crisis in Somalia. The Shelter Cluster Strategic Objectives focus on three objectives:

  • Ensure that 1,300,000 persons affected by conflict and natural disasters have protection from the weather and privacy through provision of emergency shelter and NFIs.
  • Contribute to resilience and improve the living conditions of 400,000 affected population through improved housing and related community infrastructure.
  • Improve the quality of shelter and NFI assistance and ensure accountability through effective complaint and feedback mechanisms.
