Emergency Shelter and NFI Cluster (North): Review of the 2014 Flood Response - Lessons Learned



Between 24 April and 6 June 2014, the worst seasonal flooding for 100 years impacted 8 provinces in the North and North East of Afghanistan. Over 112,000 people were affected, 221 deaths were reported and some 8,000 homes were completely destroyed.
A relief effort by members of Shelter Cluster (North), coordinated with local authorities and other national and international organizations, assisted some 14,000 families. A Shelter Recovery Plan (SRP) was implemented and targeted 3,657 of the most vulnerable Category A families, those with fully destroyed houses. Winter assistance, a combination of NFIs and Cash/Voucher for fuel, targeted 3,800 families prioritizing those who had been forced to relocate their homes completely and those that had not received shelter assistance.
