Shelter Cluster

The Shelter and Non-Food Items (S-NFI) Cluster acts as a coordinating mechanism of partner organizations working to provide life-saving household items and shelter materials to conflict and disaster-affected people across South Sudan. IOM co-leads the S-NFI Cluster with World Vision International.

In 2018, the S-NFI Cluster coordinated critical humanitarian assistance through construction, rehabilitation and upgrading of emergency shelters as well as NFI distributions. During the reporting period, the Cluster partners responded to the needs of a total of 854,185 individuals.

The Cluster coordinated mobile and static responses of 24 S-NFI humanitarian partners.

The S-NFI Cluster Program Quality Working Group finalized new post-distribution monitoring (PDM) tools: household questionnaire, focus group discussion, key informant interviews, in-depth interview and PDM reporting templates. These comprehensive tools include cross-cutting issues and housing, land and property; protection; gender; accountability to affected populations; and environment, among others.
