Shelter Centre, CARE, NRC, UNHCR, IFRC & UN/OCHA
Shelter Centre was asked by the Emergency Shelter Cluster (ESC) to support standard setting and climatic design
Shelter Centre is leading the development
Current partners include CARE International, NRC, UNHCR, IFRC and UN/OCHA
An interim report was recently distributed to project members, outlining the progress made by project partners so far, and outlining the work to be undertaken in the coming months
The progress made by project partners is outlined on the following slides
Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) has derived a series of Emergency Shelter Cluster Standards for major shelter NFIs from existing agency specifications, by listing all specifications in a matrix, finding commonalities and developing a range
ESC STANDARD FOR BLANKETS
Blanket specification fromAgency 1
Blanket specification fromAgency 2
Blanket specification fromAgency 3
CAREInternational has derived a series of ESC shelter NFI kits by researching how NFI kits are combined and distributed, and defining a series of core shelter NFI distribution packages
As well as leading the project, Shelter Centre has drafted a preliminary table of contents for the supporting guidance on climatic variations
Shelter Centre is consulting with the WASH cluster and other major agencies involved with NFIs in order to maximise impact and prevent duplication
