Annual Report 2021

January to December 2021

Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO)
Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP)
Current Challenges
  • Active participation in cluster meetings is sometimes limited to a few organisations hence the decisions can sometimes reflect the point of view of only a few organisations.  There is a need to set up the SAG and formalise the Technical Working Groups and Information Management Group with clear ToRs, to ensure that all decisions and their rational are documented.
  • Poor knowledge amongst Nutrition Cluster members on the functioning of a cluster. There is a need to build capacity on the key cluster functions and the roles and responsibilities of partners
  • Key decision-makers do not always attend meetings, which can lead to some delays in decisions and actions
  • The introduction of the new 5W matrix required intensive support, from the NCC to partners, to be able to provide timely and quality information. On-going support and accompaniment will still be needed in 2022.
  • Regional and district-level sub-clusters also required intensive support, from the NCC, to be able to function as per minimum cluster standards. With the help of the GNC, a specific training program has been launched in December 2021 to further strengthen their capacity.
  • The nutrition cluster technical working groups require strong, hands-on support from UNICEF to remain operational
