This online Shelter in Urban Emergencies course will help Shelter humanitarians with limited experience of working in an urban context to explore and develop the necessary skills and knowledge to work effectively in the early stages of an urban emergency.


Sessions covered will include:

- Shelter standards & guidelines
- Housing, land and property issues
- Partnerships
- Reconstruction and recovery
- Technical shelter solutions in urban contexts


The total cost of the six week e-facilitated course is £333 per person.

The target audience for this course is Shelter humanitarians, with practical experience in the field. Participants should have an interest in working in an urban emergency response and have some experience in the humanitarian and/or development sector. This course presupposes a working knowledge of basic humanitarian principles.


The duration of the facilitated on-line course is 6 consecutive weeks where all activities take place on-line. It is expected that you spend around three to five hours per week on participating in team activities and completing individual tasks. Most of the activities are asynchronous, meaning you can log in when convenient for you, whether that is during the working day, in the evening at home or while travelling. However, there will be some webinars where a time will be scheduled and participants will need to be available to participate in tasks; this will cater to different time zones and working schedules.

The most important thing is that participants are fully committed to completing the course and sharing their own experiences with the other participants they will be working with. The maximum number of participants is 24.
