NRC Shelter-HLP Project

Preliminary Findings

And

Cautious Suggestions


The Challenge:

  • Humanitarian Organisations often get stuck -- or realise too late that something is becoming unstuck --when it comes to:

  • Housing, Land and Property Rights

  • Land Access

  • Tenure Security


Some help is at hand…

  • A network of different international rights-based instruments

  • A history of trainings focused on HLP

  • Upcoming Resources Guide, developed by the ESC HLP Working Group


But,

  • There is often not enough practical guidance for implementing according to international principles

  • The rule of law doesn’t stretch very far in some places

  • Intractable HLP problems do not respect project deadlines

  • We are not always the answer to the problem


Some preliminary suggestions 1:

  • Map all of the locally applicable tenure-security instruments

  • On a range of ‘soft’ to ‘hard’, and ‘efficient’ to ‘non-efficient

  • Including ‘customary’ and ‘formal’

  • Decide which set of instruments you will engage with

  • Why these ones?

  • What are the pros and cons?

  • What are the risks?

  • What is the Plan B?


Some preliminary suggestions 2:

  • Think: all aspects of The Right To Adequate Housing

  • Think: Individual -- and Community

  • Think: the relationship between HLP and engineering


Some preliminary suggestions 3:

  • First, Do No Harm

  • Humanitarians are not always the answer

  • ‘How to take NO for an answer’

  • ‘Customary law works, until something changes’

  • How to help people cope with the problem, rather than solving the problem for them?
