Rebuilding lives with shelter grants

2011 — By IFRC

Bangladesh following the devastation caused by Hurricane Sidr in 2007. Part of the overall programme was the shelter programme, which provided community members with the funds, skills and tools they needed to replace or repair their damaged homes. Dependent on the damage to the homes, households were provided with a core shelter plus a cash grant, or just a cash grant with which to repair their home. This briefing documents the experience of the shelter programme and highlights good practice, key achievements, challenges faced and learning points. (An accompanying briefing, Revitalising communities with cash grants, summarises the work of its sister programme, the livelihoods programme.)
