This chapter is divided into two main sections:
Shelter and settlement
Non-food items: clothing, bedding and household items
Both sections provide general standards for use in any of several response scenarios for displaced and non-displaced populations, including temporary or transitional individual household shelter on original sites, or the return to repaired dwellings; temporary accommodation with host families; and/or temporary communal settlement comprising planned or self-settled camps, collective centres, transit or return centres.
The Protection Principles and Core Standards must be used consistently with this chapter.
Although primarily intended to inform humanitarian response to a disaster, the minimum standards may also be considered during disaster preparedness and the transition to recovery and reconstruction activities.
