Events: Shelter & Settlement Planning Course
Venue: Indepth Research Services, Nairobi, Kenya
Event Date: 25th – 29th June 2018
Shelter & settlement planning in emergencies helps you understand strategies and practices that are intrinsic to the shelter sector and humanitarian sector in general. The training aims to improve the effectiveness of specialist and non - specialist in emergency response.
This training aims to equip participants with the skills required to design a shelter and settlements response in a humanitarian crisis after natural disasters. It will provide participants with an overview of shelter and settlements in emergencies, their relevance in humanitarian programmes and an understanding of the principles and practice of humanitarian shelter response.
At the end of the training, students will have acquired strategic and practical knowledge of shelter and settlements policies, methods, tools and procedures in the humanitarian response system and are prepared to practice these in a sustainable manner from relief to recovery.
The overall objective of the course is to introduce non-specialist and specialist participants to Settlement Planning and Shelter impacts and options by developing practical skills in the development of appropriate strategies for settling and sheltering populations affected by conflict and natural disasters. Emergency programmes, ranging from host family support and refugee camps to reconstruction and disaster preparedness; and projects, ranging from support of local health infrastructure to the distribution of shelter will form the back drop of this course.
