Share East Africa Shelter Projects Workshop: Learning from the Past

Event Details

This event will focus on learning from past experiences of shelter and settlement responses in the East & Horn of Africa region by actively engaging actors using case studies from the Shelter Projects publication. It will bring together practitioners, academics and other relevant stakeholders to collectively review case studies from past editions, focusing on “what worked well” and “what didn’t work well” in the past. It will also provide an opportunity to share experiences from recent shelter and settlement responses in the region, which will be reviewed and considered for inclusion in the next edition.

Shelter Projects ( is a bi-annual publication which compiles case studies and overviews of shelter and settlement responses in support of disaster- and conflict-affected populations, implemented by international organisations, UN agencies, NGOs and host governments. The workshop aims at converting this body of knowledge – now including over 230 case studies from over 60 organisations and 80 countries – into a vehicle for active learning and dissemination, with the long-term objective of providing further coherence in future national and international responses to shelter needs.
