The overall objective of the course is to introduce non-specialist and specialist participants to settlement planning and Shelter impacts and options by developing practical skills in the development of appropriate strategies for settling and sheltering populations affected by conflict and natural disasters.

- Decision makers within donor organisations that fund shelter projects;
- Experienced built environment professionals looking to move into the humanitarian sector;
- It may also be suitable for managers/coordinators and other personnel with humanitarian experience looking to further their understanding of the issues of shelter in emergencies.
