Transitional Shelters - Eight Designs

Mrs. Ela Serdaroglu presented the recent IFRC Publication "Transitional shelters - 8 designs".

The definition for transitional shelter as a product, as well as findings from the analysis and evaluation of eight implemented transitional shelter designs, using the following construction materials were shown:

  • Timber
  • Steel
  • Bamboo

In the end performance summaries regarding the hazard resistance of each shelter design were presented.

Findings showed that in many cases small improvements such as bracing can make significant differences.
