 Participation

 We welcomed participation in-person and online from over 25 countries by representatives from 44 different agencies, including 2 donors, 2 IASC clusters, 3 United Nations bodies, 1 International Organisation, ICRC, IFRC, 3 Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies, 13 NGOs, 29 independent humanitarian shelter specialists and 6 academic and research institutions. 

Host -   IASC Global Shelter Cluster

The IASC Global Shelter Cluster kindly agreed to act as host for the meeting, following the tradition of different agencies hosting different Shelter Meetings.

'Response Options' was the theme of the meeting, with breakout groups covering the areas of 'Response Options' and 'Technical Sector Priorities'.  

Although this is the beginning of conversations on these two themes, we are hopeful that the ideas brought forward at Shelter Meeting 14 will continue to will continue to be discussed and evolve into concrete positive changes.
