Markets are functioning and well - integrated with Addis Ababa market and imported goods from Kenya, Somalia trade routes and through the port of Djibouti.
In order to support management of the humanitarian response in Ethiopia, sectors have identified a set of response and contextual indicators. The monthly data provided against those indicators by the sectors has been visualized in the following infographics. These visuals will help understand how the drought response is progressing and identify where issues are developing so that proactive measures can be taken.

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.
• Hostilities has spread in many locations of Greater Equatoria particularly in Yei, Kajo-Keji, Kapoeta North, Rumbek, Morobo, Mundri West and Maridi County forcing thousands of people to leave their homes and seek protection and humanitarian assistance in neighbouring counties and some are even crossing border to Uganda.
Release of the Mid-Year Review (MYR) of the Humanitarian Requirements Document – The Shelter/NFI cluster identified the need to assist 1.02 million beneficiaries. -https://reliefweb.int/report/ethiopia/mid-year-reviewethiopia-humanitarian-requirements-document-july-2017
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.
Since the start of 2017, the cluster has received requests to support 59,522displaced households (53% of HRD 2017 target of 111,637 HH).DTM Round 4 (March-April) revealed a total of 135,352 displacedhouseholds -alreadyexceeding the HRD 2017 target. Of this number, 79,373households reported a specific need for shelter-NFI assistance in the regions ofOromia, Somali, Afar, Gambela,
Tigray, Hareri and Amhara.
Purpose: To identify and share key lessons and recommendations on the role played by the Ethiopia Shelter & NFIs Cluster in the Humanitarian response from 2015 to 2016. Lessons learnt and recommendations will be used for improving and informing future shelter cluster responses, by evaluating the impact and effectiveness of the coordination services.
Background & Context
The number of households in need of shelter & NFI assistance has reached 45,000 in the first 2 months of 2017, more than two-thirds of the projected new displacements in the Humanitarian Requirements Document. A pipeline break of emergency shelter/NFIs is expected by May given current drought and conflict induced displacement trends. As of 28 February, the Cluster had reached 6,900 households with emergency shelter and household items, amounting to 15.4% of the needs. The Cluster has 15,693 kits in stock and 12,000 kits in the pipeline.
