  1. Immediately after the disaster the first requirement is large-scale shelters. Erection of any permanent or semi-permanent shelters is time-consuming, costly and difficult.

    2. Cheap greenhouses/net-houses might be an answer. They can provide immediate and cost-effective relief to homeless people.

    3. After 2001 Bhuj earthquake a number of experimental greenhouses were converted into shelters and have worked successfully. Two models of 10' x 12' (good for family of 6 to 7 people) were designed and set up. Later 5000 of these units were set up around Bachau.
