Evidence Brief: Shelter Self-Recovery in Humanitarian Emergencies

This brief provides an overview of The effectiveness and efficiency of interventions supporting shelter self-recovery following humanitarian crises – an evidence synthesis published in January 2017 by the Humanitarian Evidence Programme and carried out by a team at Habitat for Humanity and University College London. It summarizes key findings in response to the two main research questions identified, indicates the country contexts from which evidence is drawn, outlines the methodology, highlights research gaps and provides references to the original literature. The brief aims to assist policy-makers, practitioners and researchers in assessing the available evidence in this field. It does not provide advice on which interventions or approaches are more or less appropriate in any given context. The varied and varying nature of crisis, vulnerability, goals of humanitarian programming, local conditions and quality of available data make the evidence highly contextual. The views and opinions expressed herein are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent those of OxfamFeinstein or the UK government.For further information, please visit: https://fic.tufts.edu/publication-item/evidence-brief-shelter-self-recov...
