Emergency Sahel Shelter Kit – Niger Review in Ngourtoua Camp. Diffa region

1. Overview

The “Aide internationale de la Croix-Rouge Luxembourgeoise” (AI CRL) has been working since 2013 in Diffa, Niger. In close collaboration with the Nigerian Red Cross (NRC), it carries out interventions in the field of shelters for displaced populations, refugees, and returnees in the Diffa region.

In September 2017, a new transitional shelter model was developed by IFRC-SRU and implemented by AI CRL and CRN in the Diffa region.

The IFRC-SRU has been requested to provide technical support to review the ongoing shelter project implemented in DIFFA.

2. Used Methodology

The security situation in the region remains unstable with continuous incidents recorded lately. In this context, access to the field for any IFRC-SRU member is currently restricted.

Therefore, the overall objective of IFRC-SRU’s consultancy is to provide remote technical assistance to assist the local team (AI CRL) in the collection of the information and review of the shelter project currently implemented in DIFFA.

The technical support will include the development of data collection tools, the briefing, and coaching of the local team (AI CRL) in charge to evaluate the project, and the analysis of the finding and report with recommendations to improve the housing project.

The technical support is organized as follows:

  • Preparation of the data collection tools and review process
  • Briefing on the use of the tools and modalities of data collection
  • Follow-up of the data collected during the mission of evaluation
  • Capturing the information collected and reporting with key recommendations

3. Context identification and limits

The “Aide Internationale de la Croix-Rouge Luxembourgeoise” (AI CRL) carries out Shelter and WATSAN interventions for displaced populations, refugees, and returnees in the Diffa region in the context of the Lake Chad crisis.

The intervention in the Diffa region focuses on the construction of 2 types of Shelters, about 1,200 houses in adobe and 14,000 emergency shelters as well as family latrines and emergency latrines.

The current review will focus on the 700 transitional shelters set up in Ngourtoua site for displaced persons and refugees with 4,256 people, located not far from Chetimari on national road number 1.
