As the displacement crisis in Yemen continues, humanitarian organisations and UN agencies working with IDPs, returnees and host communities in Yemen call on the donor community to better respond to the ongoing shelter crisis. Currently the Shelter/NFI/CCCM Cluster remains only 7% funded, which impacts upon the overall response capacity of the cluster and leaves countless vulnerable people without support.
The ongoing conflict with Boko Haram in West Africa has pushed the number of people facing the threat of severe hunger to more than 6 million according to the latest assessments, say 15 humanitarian organisations.
The warning comes as governments and donors meet to talk about the humanitarian crisis in the Lake Chad Basin region at the UN General Assembly in New York on the 23 September.

We are looking for a dedicated and experienced Head of Programme in our country operation in the Central African Republic (CAR). The Head of Programme will be responsible for developing and ensuring implementation of holistic and high quality programmes. The programme portfolio includes five of NRC's core competencies: ICLA, Education, Food Security, WASH and Shelter, across four prefectures. NRC also maintains a rapid, integrated emergency response capacity. In 2016, NRC aims to assist 110,000 persons affected by displacement in CAR.
NRC has been present in Iraq since 2010 helping to support the almost ten million people who are in need of immediate help. As violence continues to escalate across the country, 3.4 million Iraqis are now displaced and reaching people in need remains one of our greatest challenges. We expect new waves of displacement as the crisis prolongs and needs surge, particularly in areas with heavy fighting. We have scaled up our response across Iraq to meet the large-scale crisis facing the country and we prioritise reaching more vulnerable people in areas that are difficult to access.
