REACH partners with the shelter cluster as part of a global agreement to facilitate the deployment of assessment teams following humanitarian emergencies with the objective of contributing to a more informed, relevant, and timely response by actors involved in the shelter sector. REACH tools include reports and fact sheets such as this one, as well as mapping data and the use of remote sensing to track developments in an emergency.
This assessment was carried out in partnership with the Shelter and WASH clusters. It further seeks to complement the IDP settlement information management process in Somalia by identifying key information gaps within the shelter and WASH sector. The information consolidated in this report can inform humanitarian actors and stakeholders of priority areas and actions to be taken into consideration for humanitarian operational purposes.
