  • 21st July 2018) in Niamey.
  • Analyze the relevance of reinforcing the transitional shelter model to resist the climatic conditions in Diffa, with particular consideration on the team’s capacities and the complexity of the assembly procedure.
  • Guide the work of the local draftsman/filmmaker to develop a dissemination/training tool adapted to the context for the implementation of the Sahel Shelter.
  • Provide advice to the IA-LRC and the NRC team in Diffa in setting up distribution procedures and logistical procedures adapted to the context of the project implementation.
