Shelter Sector Response Plan: as a contribution to a common Action Plan for Haiti

The earthquake that occurred on 12 January 2010 has led to the deaths of an estimated more than 200, 000 persons, and created 1, 300, 000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). A greater number has been affected but not displaced, with as yet unquantified damage and destruction to both infrastructure and homes. In order to define a suitable scaled and appropriately designed response to these needs, a Shelter Sector Response Plan has been prepared by the Strategic Advisory Group of the Shelter Cluster. This Sector Response Plan should be considered a living document and will be continually revised to adapt to a dynamic and unpredictable future to this response.
