Cluster Alojamiento, Energía y Enseres, 2023


  • By the end of January, the Shelter, Energy and NFI Cluster reached 2,049 beneficiaries through partners interventions in communities’ spaces and temporary shelters.
  • The extension of the Humanitarian Response Plan for Venezuela 2024-2025 was published. For the Shelter, Energy and NFI Cluster, the plan aims to reach more than 800.000 people through activities in community spaces and institutions, delivering NFIs, and strengthening temporary shelters. 24 partner organizations presented 23 projects in the sector, requesting US$ 48,1M.
  • During a SAG meeting a new edition of the NFI catalog was validated. This new version incorporates changes in the items of two standardized kits and provides guidelines for adapting the kits to large family groups.
  • A training was conducted to strengthen the reporting of activities in the 345W platform and to explain the cluster's logical framework. 18 people from partner organizations participated.
  • The cluster is actively engaged in organizing the preparatory activities for the energy week scheduled for April.

Need analysis

  • Within the Inter Cluster Coordination Group, the methodology for the need assessment and analysis phase for the new Humanitarian Programme Cycle is being defined.
  • Reportedly, indigenous communities have raised concerns about the impact of malaria, leishmaniasis, and tuberculosis on their well-being. There is a pressing need to deliver a response and offer support to the indigenous population residing in the Perijá territory, which encompasses five basins in the Zulia state.
  • There is a need to strengthen partners' capacities in risk and disaster management. Several organizations have requested trainings related to shelter and NFI response before, during and after an emergency associated with natural events.


  • By the end of January, the Shelter, Energy and NFI Cluster reached 2049 beneficiaries through partners interventions in communities and temporary shelters.
  • 1251 beneficiaries occupied temporary Shelters in Apure, Miranda, Falcón, Táchira and Zulia.
  • A system to provide energy was installed in Delta Amacuro, with 798 beneficiaries.

Gaps / challenges

  • Even though there are identified humanitarian needs in Amazonas state related to limited access to energy and lack of temporary shelters for indigenous communities, there are not enough partners organizations to provide shelter assistance.
  • Urgent attention is required for isolated indigenous communities experiencing malaria and leishmaniasis cases in Zulia state, where access is limited due to lack of formal roads and remoteness from urban centers. It is a priority to supply basic NFI such as mosquito nets to prevent these vector-borne diseases.
