Humanitarian Sheltering is a key component to assist affected populations in rebuilding lives and livelihoods. The Open Shelter Database currently hosts information on 160 shelters implemented by different actors in various countries. All shelters recorded in the database are presented in a comparable and standardized fashion in order to offer an overview of construction techniques, construction details, and materials used, which can be applied and adapted to future emergency response.
In order to further disseminate the Open Shelter Database and promote its population, IFRC-SRU has undertaken a mission to the Philippines from the 5th to the 14th of November 2018.
