Saving lives through faster emergency response
In June 2004, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) was shaken by widespread crises, notably in the East of the country. To ensure that response organizations had the financial and material means to react quickly, the humanitarian community implemented a Rapid Response Mechanism program in October 2004.
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.
Eastern DRC is a mosaic of constantly shifting zones of insecurity and relative stability, with new waves of displacement and return every week. These multiple and protracted crises impact families’ access to adequate shelter and essential household and personal items to undertake essential daily activities for their survival, well-being, and protection.
Average NFI vulnerability scores among affected population in 2015 were an average of 3.8; the Cluster intervention threshold is 3.0.
