Basic needs, including food

To address the needs of crisis-affected populations, IOM proposes to:

  • Provide lifesaving humanitarian assistance through multi-purpose cash transfers (MPCT) for vulnerable IDPs across Ethiopia to cover basic needs like emergency food, livelihoods, shelter, and WASH, as well as some transportation costs. Considering that IDPs are on the move and the needs of affected people are diverse, unconditional cash-based assistance will enable beneficiaries to prioritize their most pressing needs in a dignified manner; 
  • Continue to provide emergency food assistance as part of its support to vulnerable migrant returnees arriving at land PoE.

Shelter, settlements and non-food items

IOM’s 2022 ES/NFI programme will pursue emergency response as well as recovery activities in more stable locations. Emergency response interventions will ensure critical steps are taken to provide safety, dignity and access to basic household supplies and emergency shelter for displacement-affected populations and returnee migrants, while recovery programmes will pursue participatory shelter repairs and rehabilitation targeting returnees and affected populations. Housing and land issues will be assessed and prioritized for support in all relevant contexts to ensure adequate security of tenure and avoid the eviction of beneficiaries. Cash-based interventions (CBI) will be considered, dependent on the context of each target area. Where possible, shelter interventions will be conducted alongside the WASH, CCCM, and health sectors to increase the impact of the response. Activities will include:

  • Response to sudden displacement due to floods, drought, conflict and other events using appropriate response modalities based on needs, market feasibility and level of destruction, including the provision of ES/NFI kits, basic shelter repair assistance (capacity-building and provision of rehabilitation kits), and cash for rent;
  • In Tigray, upgrade of existing IDP shelter solutions such as unfinished buildings and piloting the neighbourhood approach proposed by the ES/NFI Cluster;
  • Provision of shelter repair assistance to returning IDPs to promote recovery after conflict using a mixture of in-kind and cash-based approaches;
  • Provision of NFIs to vulnerable returnees at air and land PoEs based on returnees’ individual needs. These often include dignity kits, WASH NFIs, clothes, and shoes, as well as infant care items;
  • Through the RRF, support to ES/NFI Cluster partners to respond to emergencies by continuing the ES/NFI Cluster pipeline of in-kind NFI and emergency shelter kits. The RRF will also complement partner responses through cash for NFI support.

As co-lead of the ES/NFI Cluster in Ethiopia, co-chair of five sub-national cluster coordination structures for the Northern Ethiopia response (four in Tigray and Amhara and one in Afar) and sub-national co-coordinator in other displacement-affected areas, including Somali region, East Wellega (Oromia region), and Benishangul Gumuz, IOM will continue to support the cluster through:

  • Allocation of personnel and resources across the country based on operational needs and the recommendation of the ES/NFI strategic advisory board, with the aim to increase the seniority of coordination staff and information management capacity on the ground. 
  • At the sub-national level, ensuring appropriate advocacy for the affected populations and producing relevant sector products such as 5W (Who does What When Where and for Whom), situation reports, and response dashboards.
