Dignified and Safer Living Conditions for IDPs in Protracted Crises: North West Syria
Monday, April 12, 2021
Shelter Cluster

After a decade of conflict, the shelter sector in Syria needs to reflect a range of humanitarian shelter options that provide safety, dignity and protection in a context of protracted displacement. These options should also support the choices made by IDPs themselves in finding adequate shelter. Adequate humanitarian shelter options can vary according to the needs, urgency and circumstances of the IDPs themselves.

This document outlines some of the main current approaches to dignified shelter, including tents and tool kits, self-built shelters, RHUs, prefabricated shelters, and Temporary Dignified Shelters with a value range of between USD 100-1,200. All of these options can be used to address different shelter needs at different times.
