Shelter Centre supports all stakeholders from all sectors in technical learning through the inclusive Shelter Meeting community of practice, supported by the Humanitarian Library, responding to the transitional settlement and reconstruction following conflict and natural disasters
We support collaboration by offering opportunities for stakeholders to come together to exchange technical knowledge and good practice. Shelter Centre holds biannual Shelter Meetings to discuss future directions and peer review new initiatives.
We support consensus by agreeing and sharing technical good practice. Shelter Centre produces peer-reviewed guidance, in addition to hosting the Humanitarian Library, where users share knowledge in real-time and create collections of content useful to them.
We support capacity by participating in trainings and involving young professionals. Shelter Centre develops and delivers technical trainings, as well as engaging Project Assistants to work on Shelter Meetings, Humanitarian Library and technical manuals.
