Improvement of living conditions in sites was achieved in 2 islands with major ground/preparatory works in order to receive accommodation prefabricated housing units, over tents. This activity benefited approx. 2000 refugees and migrants.
15 sites on the mainland have improved shelter infrastructures, so approx. 4400 refugees received shelter upgrades through tent replacement and/or shelter repairs in 7 sites, generators placement for power supply and/or support, building rehabilitations ( 19 units), while advocacy for alternatives to RICs continued on the islands.
The Shelter/WASH sector created, validated and now uses some technical guidance references in regards to practical shelter and site planning measures to mitigate the risk of SGBV, but also for communal kitchens, communal laundry facilities and external lighting needs.
Primary purpose continued to be to coordinate and support the delivery of water, sanitation and hygiene promotion assistance to affected population. Improvement of WASH conditions was achieved in islands and mainland locations with new prefabricated toilet and shower units, connected to water, sewer and electrical networks, providing adequate access to essential WASH services.
