Climate change is expected to further exacerbate the risk of natural hazards by increasing the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
The primary goal of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) is to facilitate the safe, orderly, humane and dignified management of migration. In many countries this includes supporting families and individuals that have been internally displaced by natural or man-made disasters. In Pakistan, our work began with a r esponse to the Afghan refugee crisis, and has continued through the various challenges faced by the country since, including the 2005 earthquake and flooding in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

This booklet provides basic information about site planning and gender-based violence risks in sites hosting displaced populations, and is targeted at field practitioners. It also provides practical guidance for measures which can be taken to reduce risks to affected populations in and around camps and sites. These guidelines are the result of work done by IOM for the Global Shelter Cluster.
In October / November 2016 IOM and HBC conducted shelter assessments in the provinces of Madang, Milne Bay, Oro and Morobe. 13 villages were assessed through focus groups and informal interviews with various community members, house owners and carpenters / builders. These assessments looked at shelter trends, current building capacity, and identification of dangerous or inappropriate construction practices. Shelters were also assessed on their capacity to provide safe shelter in the event of a natural disaster.
