Protection through the Provision of NFIs/Shelter
assistance to IDPs

North West and South West Regions, Cameroun
and Host Communities

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
(UNHCR) is a non-for-profit, humanitarian
organization, and agency of the United Nations. The
mandate of the High Commissioner was established
by the resolution 319 A (IV) of 3 December 1949,
and provided with its Statute in resolution 428 (V) of
14 December 1950. The Statute stipulates that the
High Commissioner "acting under the authority of
the General Assembly, shall assume the function of
providing international protection to refugees,
stateless people and other people of concern, and of
seeking permanent solutions to their problems." In
Cameroon, UNHCR established its presence since
1982 and has provided its services to Refugees,
Asylum seekers, Returnees, Internally Displaced
Persons and to People facing the Risk of
Statelessness. As of September 2018, Cameroon is
home to some 696,097 People of Concern to UNHCR,
including 263,206 Central African, and 100,504
Nigerian refugees. UNHCR currently runs 10 offices
within the country, including a Representation in
Yaoundé, 3 Sub Offices (Bertoua, Meiganga, Maroua),
5 Field Offices (Batouri, Djohong, Touboro, Douala
and Buea) and 1 Field Unit (Kousseri).
The current security situation in the North West and
South West regions (NwSw) is unfavorable. It is
marked by a spiral of violence characterized by
attacks, exactions, killings, abductions and multiple
incidents of human rights violations. These attacks
and counter-attacks have resulted in deaths,
violence, forced displacements of populations.
The number of displaced populations in the NwSw
regions has been rising exponentially in a few
months since November 2017 due to the unabated
spiral of violence. In February 2018, based on
estimates communicated by the Catholic Church,
there were a total of 25,775 IDPs (some 5,155
Households) in the Meme and Manyu divisions of the
South West region. At the end of March 2018, as
violence spread to more villages, including in Mamfe
and Monge/Kumba subdivisions of the South West
region, an UN-OCHA inter-agency assessment
mission reported that the number of displaced
people had reached 40,000. By April 2018, the North
West and South West regions had been so seriously
affected by the crisis that the number of displaced
persons had reached as many as 160,000 people (of
which 150,000 in the South West and 10,000 in
North West regions). To date, estimates by
Humanitarian Organizations indicate that the
instability has uprooted a no less than 437,515
people (including 350,919 in the North West and
South West regions, the rest settling in neighboring
towns, forests and villages). A larger number of the
displaced people have settled in deep forests while
others are found in villages and towns spread across
the abovementioned areas.
In addition to the mounting number of protection
incidents and human rights violations, the crisis has
also had a daunting toll on people lives, in particular
with regard to loss of goods and property and
destruction of peoples' means of livelihood. As
violence escalated, cases of arson attacks and
destruction of property are numerous. On 17 October
2017, late in the evening, one of the sections of the
Catholic Primary School in Manji was burnt down.
Between 2pm and 4pm on the same day, two private
homes in Menji were destroyed. In early December
2017, rag-tag armed men damaged houses and stole
valuable items and money from residents of the
Kajifu area. In one particularly violent incident that
was followed by a procession of dispossessions of
goods and massive destruction of property the
Kwakwa village was forcibly vacated before being
burnt down. The affected regions have suffered a
very rapid deterioration of living conditions, a
collapse of means of livelihood as well as heightened
abuses affecting the entire population, in particular
children, women and the elderly. As the flare of
violence increased, the majority of IDPs report to
have departed from their homes in total depravation
of vital domestic goods. In spite of the very little
information that is available due to reduced access to
the affected areas, all assessment missions have
reported that the displaced populations are deprived
of any basic needs – including vital domestic items –
and appropriate shelter and infrastructure.
Approximatively 70% of the IDPs have moved into
forests with no access to adequate shelter or basic
household items. The lucky ones have constructed
makeshift houses offering no protection to bad
weather and animal attacks, but most IDPs
households have absolutely no access to a living
space. According to latest assessments, the majority
of the remaining IDPs are living in host families and a
small percentage is renting apartments in urban or
peri-urban areas. Both groups are living in
overcrowded and cramped conditions, with their
resources of both IDPs and host families being
In accordance with its responsibilities with regard to
internal displacements, UNHCR, is the Global Lead of
the Shelter/NFI Cluster and is responsible for
coordinating Shelter & NFIs response interventions.
It is in this regard that, along with other actors,
UNHCR established a presence in Buea (and soon in
Bamenda) where it has deployed an Emergency
Response Program with an NFI/Shelter component
focusing on the provision of Core relief items and
Shelter Assistance to IDPs and Host Communities.
UNHCR hereby invites competent National and
International Organizations to express their interest
for engaging with UNHCR in 2019 in an
implementation collaboration, as per the indicated
