Displacement and the destruction of homes and infrastructure have caused significant shelter needs in north-east Nigeria. Key sectoral vulnerabilities and shelter assessments reveal that more than 3.5 million people will require shelter and Non-Food Items (NFIs) assistance in 2019.

Through its shelter and NFI interventions, IOM delivers urgent protection from weather elements, disease and other hazards, by providing covered living spaces, essential household supplies and rehabilitation materials, both in camps and camp-like settings as well as in host communities. IOM is currently implementing Shelter and NFI activities in Borno, Adamawa, Kogi and Anambra states.
