Shelter After Disaster

Its out, it’s printed and it looks beautiful.

I had the opportunity to work with Shelter Centre in Geneva and worked on the Shelter After Disaster guide during some of that time. If you the search the name, you’ll find the pdf online or you can go to ReliefWeb or the Humanitarian Library.

As you’ll see in the acknowledgements Carlo, Brenda and Victoria put a lot of work into the revised publication with Tom and Antonella editing. Due to the size of the project, a lot of people helped at different stages of the project and it’s kind of them to include me in the list.

If you haven’t read the first edition (which you should), it builds on a lot of the previous work. It includes updates from experience using the first edition and uses more diagrams to simplify the explanation of the processes used.

The diagram on the first page is especially great at showing how different people are affected, how different methods can be used and the long term solution.

I have to say a big thank you to the engineers without borders placement programme that made my experience possible.
