Transitional Shelter Day 10a


The Transitional Shelter Day, on Wednesday 26th May, offered an opportunity for those engaged in transitional shelter programming to:

  • share good practice for local-build transitional shelter, including ongoing programming in Haiti;
  • discuss hazard resistance requirements, for example resistance to storm levels;
  • view a series of full prototypes for stockpiled transitional shelters; and to
  • discuss the role of stockpiled shelter and how best to achieve sufficient manufacturing capacity.

Full materials from this meeting will be available on this web page soon.
