PGCert Shelter after Disaster

PGCert - Shelter after Disaster

While shelter after disaster has been a recognised field of work for at least thirty years, the systems and approaches for successful shelter delivery are far from clear. With a bewildering range of actors and contested debate over the best approaches, achieving equitable, sustainable and effective shelter after disaster can be complex and too often goes wrong. To these ends the Centre for Development and Emergency Practice's (CENDEP) approach to shelter after disaster is to learn from practice about what works best.
