  2. The most urgent needs detected during the multi-sector evaluations were: emergency shelters and rental support, non-food item (NFI) kits, WASH and food.

  3. Long-term needs detected: durable shelter solutions, seeds and agricultural support. A Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) strategy is highly recommended for the main flooded areas

Challenges of the response

  1. Resources limited during the emergency response.

  2. The Recovery Phase is underfunded, the Shelter Sector is unable to respond to the mid and long-term shelter/NFI needs of the aected population.

  3. Sector stock emptied. Insufficient resources to respond to future emergencies.
