Emergency Sahel Shelter; Warehouse and Natural Fibre versions (IFRC SRU, 2017)

West Africa has faced and continues to face frequent episodes of population movement.

The National Societies of the Red Cross Cross of West Africa are often called upon to intervene at the frontline during each crisis. There is therefore a need to equip them with shelter solutions designed in a participatory and innovative way, upstream of the production of materials and integrative of end-user perspectives.

This project aims at improving the living conditions of the displaced populations through the development and implementation of a contextualized shelter solution. Different projects have been implemented across this region, with more than 4000 adapted shelter kits distributed across Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger to date.

The IFRC-SRU was asked to conduct a study to analyze and review the current shelter solutions deployed. The overall objective of the IFRC-SRU consultancy is to provide a basic technical review focused on the standardization of a reviewed shelter solution, with a focus on improving the durability of the product, particularly during storage and warehousing.
