About the course

Our Shelter after Disaster course provides you with the knowledge to understand and discuss the essential components of shelter response after a disaster.

Safe shelter is a critical need immediately after a natural disaster. This course aims to develop reflective practitioners who can combine:

  • understanding of practical strategic issues of development and emergency practice
  • an appreciation of the wider political context in which they operate.

You will learn about development and humanitarian practice. AS well as the role of the practitioner intervening in post disaster reconstruction.
