Description

Under Global Shelter Cluster framework, a specific working group has been formed on strengthening diaspora engagement in shelter response (DESR WG). This new forum has led to the definition of Standards Operating Procedures (SOPs) on Diaspora’s Engagement in Shelter Assistance, that were finalized in August 2021. These are meant to propose a step-by-step procedure for a more coordinated and effective engagement of diasporas in the Shelter & Settlement response, with the ultimate goal of expanding and improving assistance in the shelter sector, at different stages of the crisis management cycle. These SOPs are designed in the hope they may be used in all crisis contexts, where diasporas intervene within the shelter and settlement sector.

This Document Index aims to consolidate references relevant for DESR, grouped by themes and geographic interest when relevant.
