On the 12-14 January 2016, RedR held a pilot of the Shelter in Urban Emergencies course, delivered as part of RedR’s ‘Ready to Respond’ programme, funded by Lloyd’s Charities Trust. The course was developed for shelter practitioners with limited urban experience and addresses the social, legal, institutional and technical aspects of urban shelter response and related crosscutting issues.

Aid agencies have struggled to effectively respond recent urban emergencies. One of the main gaps of response is a lack of Shelter experts with urban response expertise. An urban emergency is much more complex than many rural or camp-focused emergencies. The kind of response required is greatly affected by the type of disaster and the different urban environments, whether huge cities; medium sized towns; peri-urban or slum areas. Aid agencies are much less significant players in urban responses, as their available resources are often dwarfed by those of existing service providers.
