Shelter after Disaster revision breakout group

Shelter Centre described the current draft of the revised 'Shelter after Disaster: Guidelines for Assistance' (UNDRO, 1982). Attention was brought to specific areas that could be discussed in the breakout group, such as the revised principles and the six occupancy types for non-displaced populations.

Isabelle de Muyser-Boucher, UN/OCHA, summarised the session to the plenary. Only the principles had been discussed, but that they had been covered in some detail. There was also a request for further feedback from Shelter Meeting participants not part of the Review Panel to provide written feedback regarding the draft to obtain a more representative set of opinions.
