NFI Working Group - merged into Basic Needs in 2015 - Jordan

The main objective of the NFI Sector is to ensure that the basic household needs of women, girls, boys and men are met in both camp and urban/rural areas. In camps, this will be achieved through the provision of basic household items on arrival; distribution of blankets, mattresses, hygiene kits, and kitchen sets as well as through the regular distribution of consumable items. Less frequent distribution of non-consumable NFIs will take place to replace those worn out over time. In non-camp settings, partners will continue to provide items adjusted to the needs of the target population when cash is not used to meet the needs. In addition, provision of conditional cash or vouchers has been designed to facilitate the purchase of necessary items. Both in camp and non-camp settings, a coordinated monitoring of distributions will be put in place to ensure that the items continue to meet the needs of women, girls, boys and men. The NFI Sector will work with the Protection Sector and the Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse Task Force on developing codes of conduct and strengthening complaints mechanisms and accountability systems, with explicit reference to NFI distribution sites in order to ensure equal and secure access for women, girls, boys and men. The NFI Sector in collaboration with the Shelter and Cash Sector will make a strong effort to mitigate the harsh weather conditions during winter and summer throughout the provision of additional or complementary assistance.
