Location: Your choice, Worldwide (tailor-made)
Managing the implementation of shelter programmes is a fundamental part of humanitarian response, but in a world where people’s understanding of shelter alters massively depending on the local context and the nature of the emergency, it is vital that managers and coordinators understand the standards used in order to make informed decisions. This workshop provides an overview of the shelter sector, identifying the breadth of issues, the scope of shelter programming, and can be adapted to suit the context of your working environment.
By using the tailor-made service you are not limited to our standard Shelter courses, nor the specific topic areas covered. We would be happy to tailor the agenda to meet the needs of your organisation by adapting, adding or removing modules.
Shelter managers, coordinators or generalists responsible for shelter, from the field or HQ
This is a participatory workshop, bringing together a range of organisations providing various points of reference and experiences.
• The fundamentals of shelter programming and links with other sectors
• The current challenges facing the shelter sector
• The main standards and protocols that affect shelter programmes
• The types of issues affecting shelter managers
• Different organisational models for running shelter programmes.
The workshop can be adapted to include practical elements of building models on specific shelter designs suitable to various environments, for example earthquake/hurricane proof transitional shelters, and to include more detail on the wider aspects of shelter programming such as NFI distribution, cash and voucher programmes.
As a guide, Shelter workshops usually run between one to five days, depending on course design and content. We would be delighted to work with you to create the training solution that best meets your needs.
