Shelter and settlements response in urban emergencies

Research reports and studies
October 2016

On the 12-14 January 2016, RedR held a pilot of the Shelter in Urban Emergencies course, delivered as part of RedR’s ‘Ready to Respond’ programme, funded by Lloyd’s Charities Trust. The course was developed for shelter practitioners with limited urban experience and addresses the social, legal, institutional and technical aspects of urban shelter response and related crosscutting issues.

This learning report, produced jointly between ALNAP and RedR with contributions from Shelter Centre, captures the key messages, lessons and experiences of both course facilitators and participants on the topic of shelter in urban emergency response, offering case studies and references to further readings that were discussed in the pilot course.
