Need analysis

  • The conflict in Marib governorate is currently witnessing the worst and most violent escalation in the last 7 years. Since the beginning of 2021, nearly 5,000 Yemeni families have been forced to flee their homes in Marib governorate and seek shelter elsewhere across the country. Reports indicate temporary suspension of activities in Al Jubah district in Marib due to security concerns,
     
  • Eviction threats in IDP sites are increasing, given that the majority of IDP sites are spontaneous and self-settled on private land, with no formal land agreement. Last week, around 1,000 families in 11 IDP sites in Al-Dhale’e were targeted with eviction threats. Six sites were directly impacted, and several families were forced to leave.

Response

  • During the third quarter of 2021, Shelter Cluster assisted 384,000 IDPs, returnees, and vulnerable host community members.
     
  • In Marib governorate, 11,310 of families assisted with NFIs, 2,501 with emergency shelters, and 4,137 with rental support.
     
  • In response to the eviction threats in Al Dhale’e, the Shelter Cluster is working in collaboration with the CCCM Cluster and Protection Cluster under the Tri-cluster approach to address the situation with relevant counterparts.
     
  • The Shelter Cluster is preparing a Shelter Solutions Exhibition that would present an opportunity for partners, communities, affected people, donors, local authorities, and other stakeholders to appreciate the basic shelter needs of displaced families. The Shelter technical working group will review, learn and develop appropriate shelter designs better adapted to the habitability needs of IDPs in Yemen. After the exhibition, shelter solutions designs, BOQ’s and specifications will be fine-tuned in support of the Shelter Cluster 2022 planning.

Gaps / challenges

  • Significant funding shortfall remains a primary challenge hindering the Shelter and NFI response. Funding received is still at 18%, and the gaps are massive.
     
  • The Shelter and Non-Food Items stock level is alarmingly low and expected to be depleted in eight weeks.
