Shelter Projects 2009

The second edition of the ‘Shelter Projects 2009’ is an institutional collaboration between two key organisations involved in shelter and settlements after disasters, IFRC and UNHABITAT. It offers a concrete tool for investigation and knowledge-sharing within the sector. It aims to serve the entire community of shelter practitioners, who are called to respond to natural disasters and conflicts both nationally and internationally year in, year out. Shelter Projects 2009 draws the attention to the following three key findings: Firstly, several examples show that the use of cash grants, material vouchers and other non-conventional approaches to shelter perform well in emergencies. Secondly, there is increasing evidence that the world is going urban, and so are disasters. Thirdly, 2009 has also witnessed disasters in the so-called ‘developed’ world.
