The activities of Shelter Centre.
The 2006 - 2011 programme supports the humanitarian shelter sector and the transitional settlement of those affected by conflict and natural disasters. The programme is funded by the DFID Conflict and Humanitarian Fund (CHF).
Shelter Meeting is the twice-yearly sector forum organised and run by Shelter Centre. The products and services described below are based upon requirements defined by participants of the Shelter Meeting. The semiannual Shelter Meeting, of which Shelter Centre holds the secretariat, constitutes the panel for the peer review process of the programme. Participant organisations include national government line ministries, NGOs, IOs, UN bodies and donors. Agenda and presentations from previous Meetings are available for viewing in the Shelter Meeting section of this site.
Shelter Library brings together key sector publications into one place.
Shelter Training is technical training which aims to improve technical capability in the shelter sector through offering standard, modular, basic training in support of transitional settlement and reconstruction operations.
Shelter Community is an online global community and communication tool to link shelter sector professionals. Users can search for and contact other members and organisations, providing an opportunity to network, collaborate, share expertise and experiences, and promote best practice
Shelter Interns programme aims both to increase the number of appropriate first mission candidates available to the humanitarian shelter sector, as well as to increase capacity within Shelter Centre to support the sector.
