To be used in cases of beneficiaries residing in an open area without protection from the weather.
Only category A beneficiaries should receive emergency shelter in order to immediately provide protection and ensure the dignity and privacy of the families. Other solutions, such as Cash for Rent and hosting possibilities should be explored before distribution of larger numbers of emergency shelters. Please note that the cluster do not endorse large distributions of emergency shelter without complimentary WASH intervention and general development of camp infrastructure.

Category B and C beneficiaries will normally have the possibility to repair their shelters when provided with resources to do so.
