The Global Shelter Cluster

The Global Shelter Cluster (GSC) is an Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) coordination mechanism that supports people affected by natural disasters and internally displaced people affected by conflict with the means to live in safe, dignified and appropriate shelter. The GSC enables better coordination among shelter actors, including local and national governments, so that people who need shelter assistance get help faster and receive the right kind of support. 

The GSC is is a public platform co-chaired by IFRC and UNHCR at the global level, and it has 45 partners who participate on a regular basis. IFRC is convener of the Shelter Cluster in natural disasters while UNHCR leads the Shelter Cluster in conflict situations.

The work of the Global Shelter Cluster is based on its Strategy 2018-22
