Planning Centralised Building Waste Management Programmes in Response to Large Disasters
This booklet is a short guide for shelter practitioners with little experience of centralised disaster waste settings, mainly in response to large disasters. It highlights key issues and priorities of disaster waste management in different settings. It provides simple examples of re-use and recycling of building waste materials in temporary and permanent shelter programmes. Further reading and other sources of more in-depth information are provided.
This project is a collaboration between ProAct Network, Disaster Waste Recovery (DWR) and Shelter Centre. It is funded via the Shelter Centre Conflict and Humanitarian Fund Programme supported by DFID.
