Guidelines for Post Disaster Housing

 This document is the first edition of Oxfam GB‟s Guidelines for Post Disaster Housing Reconstruction.  It is the result of an initiative undertaken by Oxfam's Humanitarian Department in 2003 to look at how institutional learning on shelter and housing as a humanitarian intervention can be improved.  It is hoped that this document will aid decision making about when reconstruction housing is an appropriate humanitarian response, and how such projects can be more effectively designed, monitored, and supported.
