Pourquoi Les Notes d’Orientation pour les secteurs AME1 et SECAL2 ?
This document provides an overview of responses to the Global Shelter Cluster (GSC) online survey, conducted in preparation for the annual GSC Meeting. Findings are based on a total of 106 responses, as of 26 September 2017.
There are more internally displaced persons in DRC than any other country in Africa. Provinces in eastern, southern, and central DRC are subject to complex episodes of violence and conflict between government forces and different militia groups. Continuous cycles of new acute crises displace hundreds of thousands of families, often leaving them with little access to basic shelter and essential household and personal non-food items (NFI).
GLOBAL SHELTER CLUSTER STRATEGY 2013-2017
Developed as an output of the 2012 GSC Meeting, the 2013-2017 Global Shelter Cluster Strategy was approved by the Strategic Advisory Group in early 2013. It has the goal to more effectively meet the sheltering needs of populations affected by humanitarian crises, by strengthening the shelter response of humanitarian actors through leadership, coordination and accountability in the humanitarian shelter sector.
CRISIS Multiple conflicts / Complex, two decades long and ongoing
TOTAL PEOPLE DISPLACED AND RETURNED1 2.82 million people (new displacements in 2016: 922,000 people).
LOCATIONS DR Congo, country wide.
VOUCHER FAIRS BENEFICIARIES2 3,950,530 persons (790,106 households) in the period 2009-2016.
IN-KIND DISTRIBUTION BENEFICIARIES2 4,471,250 persons (2009-2016)
The year 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of the Global Shelter Cluster, the inter-agency coordination mechanism for shelter response. During these ten years, coordination has improved in consistency, shelter responses have grown in scale, and there are more people with experience in shelter programming, but people continue to lose their dwellings and be displaced due to conflict and natural disasters. Global humanitarian shelter needs continue to greatly exceed the capacity and resources to respond.
