Additionally, IOM had a significant coordination role under both formally activated clusters and in country shelter coordination mechanisms in 20 countries. This document highlights the role of IOM in Shelter in 2015, provides an overview of the responses, and gives some specific examples from country operations as well as global updates.
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.
