Shelter after disaster

Shelter after disaster: strategies for transitional settlement and reconstruction offers governments, coordinators and implementers a framework for integrated shelter, settlement and reconstruction following natural disasters. The guidelines were revised with the consensus of the Shelter Meeting, and the key approach is also published both in the World Bank Handbook and forthcoming Sphere Project Minimum Standards. The revision is of the 1982 edition, Shelter After Disaster: Guidelines for Assistance. This framework is intended to be consistent with government structures and humanitarian coordination mechanism, supporting both in developing and implementing a single strategy, policy or plan for each response.
