Afghanistan: Shelter Cluster - Humanitarian Response Plan 2018 Summary


Summary narrative

Approximately 1,141,262 individuals are considered to be in need of shelter and non-food items as per the overall comprehensive needs. Those in need of shelter assistance were more likely to be female-headed (47%) than male-headed (41%). With ongoing displacements coupled with land tenure issues and the lack of durable solutions, the situation is not expected to improve in 2018. Due to high rental cost, more than two families will be compelled to share overcrowded accommodation which will restrict privacy space for women and girls. Vulnerable families including female headed households directly impacted by new emergencies in accessible and hard to reach areas as well as returnees will be targeted for emergency shelter and NFI (non-food items) assistance to ensure their personal safety from elements, privacy, dignity and mitigate protection and health risks.
