Shelter Meeting 10a
Can these guidelines help me when doing program planning (policy and technical)?
In addition they provide on overview of:
- Assessment Tools and Handbooks
- Profiling Methods
- Housing, Land and Property Issues (HLP)
- Case studies
Urban areas are very attractive (economic, social, ...) and especially after a crisis
people choose their ”durable soultion”
based on the benefits they have in the city.
Do I get guidance on who to assist (who is actually affected and in need)
and on how people make a living?
thinking about people in cities...
thinking about what happens to people in cities after disasters/crisis (durable solution) ...
- Vulnerabilities, coping strategies, capacties and household assets of Households and families but also
- Governance, infrastructure and services and vulnerabilities of Locations and neighborhoods
- Policies, Institutions and Processes of Cities
- Policies, laws and regulations on National, Regional and International level
How can the affected populations, those in need (needs based vs. status based assistance) get assistance?
Is it possible to know who is affected and what about all the urban poor?
