Organization: IOM
Author: IOM
Year: 2018

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has played a major role in humanitarian shelter operations for many decades. IOM’s unique position as an intergovernmental organization allows it to work at scale in both natural disasters and conflict/complex contexts. IOM works in both operations and coordination, and plays a strong role working with partners in support of national authorities. IOM’s overall objectives in shelter and settlements are 1) to focus on quality and scale of operations, 2) to be people-centred and context-driven, 3) to continue supporting interagency shelter coordination, 4) to support sectoral learning and identification of best practices and 5) to maintain a long term view in its responses.

Flood Resilient Shelter in Pakistan
Organization: IOM
Author: IOM
Year: 2017

The project aimed to provide scientifically tested guidance on low-cost shelter solutions that are flood resistant, compatible with vernacular architecture and indigenous construction techniques, and minimize environmental impacts while delivering the best value for money. During this study, key variables related to resilience, sustainability and local acceptability of different materials were put to test using simulated flood-water and rainwater testing tanks. The findings of this research have been used to produce a Construction Guide, which can be adapted into a training manual that can be used by operational agencies and highlights best practice in the planning, design and implementation of flood resilient shelter design in Southern Pakistan.
