Since conflict erupted in Tonga in March 2017, most of the population fled to New Fangak as IDPs, and to Liri in Sudan as refugees. In July 2017, IDPs from New Fangak started to return to Tonga. As people kept on returning, an alert for humanitarian assistance was signalled in January 2018 to provide services to the returnees and IDPs in Tonga. In March 2018, UNOCHA coordinated an intervention conducted by humanitarian actors from Malakal and UNCHR as Protection Cluster Lead Agency provided S-NFIs to 200 persons with special needs (PSNs).
In preparation for the cold weather in Darfur beginning October 2017, sector partners conducted house to house assessments of protracted IDP families to identify the most vulnerable to be assisted with renewal ES/NFIs. Some 3,800 protracted IDP households were identified as being most vulnerable and in need of assistance. Protection vulnerability criteria were used to select the beneficiaries.
During the reporting period April to June-2017 , the NFI Common Pipeline provided assistance to over 8,614 families in need
- During the 3rd quarter of the year, response to newly displaced populations continued, and with increased access to areas in Jebel Marra and South Kordofan state, sector partners were able to conduct assessments to identify ES/NFI needs of populations that had received no assistance for a number of years.
- With more stability observed in many parts of Darfur, the number of returnees also continued to increase, both IDPs and refugees from across the border in Chad.
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.
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.
Renewed fighting between government and opposition forces renewed in Western bank of Upper Nile contributed to increased displacement. An estimated 25,000 people have fled their home heading to Aburoc, many of them crossing the border to Sudan seeking refuge. In addition, S-NFI supplies valued at over USD 100,000 were looted when partners were evacuated by late April. The Cluster partners returned to Aburoc are currently reassessing the situation to respond to the remaining caseload.
This report provides the findings of the Cluster Performance Monitoring and allows the reporting of good practices, constraints and action points that will be identified and agreed upon by the cluster during the revision of the preliminary report.
The cluster approach was established in 2005 following an independent Humanitarian Response Review, to address gaps and to increase the effectiveness of humanitarian response by building partnerships. Thus, the cluster approach has been implemented for 12 years now.
UNHCR manages the NFI Common Pipeline which is a source of reliable, predictable ES/NFIs to sector partners to ensure coverage of life-saving emergency shelter needs of newly displaced conflict and disaster-affected populations who have lost their household belongings due to events in their areas of origin or in areas of displacement in a more effective and efficient way.
Current ES/NFI Sector Funding Status Update
The table to the right lists all partners that have included ES/NFI projects in the 2017 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) for Sudan, showing current funding status, as reported on OCHA’s Financial Tracking System (FTS) and bilaterally to the Sector coordinator. All sector partners are requested to update the FTS regularly and to provide information on funds secured to the Sector Lead to maintain an accurate overall sector perspective and identify gaps for advocacy.
According to the 2016 Humanitarian Needs Overview, some 3.3 million people were estimated to be in need of humanitarian assistance in Darfur, including protracted IDPs displaced since the outbreak of the Darfur conflict in 2003.
Fighting between government forces and armed movements and inter-tribal conflicts continued in various parts of Sudan during the year triggering displacement of civilians. The situation was exacerbated by strong winds and flooding in various parts of the county, destroying shelters.
Wau Shiluk lies along the western bank of the White Nile and is controlled by Shiluk forces/ SPLA-IO, it is an informal IDP camp in many ways similar to the Malakal POC. As the settlement is informal without UNMISS protection there is less structure and it has much the feel of a large village spread across multiple locations with the surrounding terrain flat and marshy.
