Niger Revision Sahel Shelter Kit – Review and improvement of the Sahel shelter solution

The Aide internationale de la Croix-Rouge luxembourgeoise (AICRL)  has been working since 2013 in Diffa, Niger. In close collaboration with the Nigerian Red Cross (CRN), it carries out interventions in the area of shelter and sanitation for refugees and IDPs in the Diffa region after the crisis in Lake Chad. In this context and with the support of various funders (MAE, HCR, ECHO), the AICRL and the CRN have worked in the region of Diffa by building two types of shelters including 1,147 houses in adobe and 10,538 emergency shelters, as well as family latrines and emergency latrines.

The IFRC-SRU has been called to conduct a technical mission in Niamey (Niger) from August 20 to 27th 2017. The overall objective of IFRC-SRU’s consultancy is to review and upgrade the current implemented shelter solutions in the country by showing the adequacy of the reviewed Sahel Shelter kit (BF 2017) into a model adapted to the conditions in the Diffa region. Based on the same structural concept and regional conception, the model should address in particular the following needs:

  • Improvement of durability, mobility, modularity of the current emergency Shelter Kit in Diffa
  • Adjustment of the composition of the constitutive kit to propose a transitional model
  • Transportability and re-usability of the kit components to complement the living spaces of the beneficiary households
