BURUNDI 26 Shelters


In April 2011, a IFRC SRU research officer has been to Burundi to map the different shelter solutions that have been implemented in that post-conflict context. It was the first attempt of mapping different shelter solutions, and is considered to be a pilot project dubbed the Burundi Mapping Experiment. The aim of the SRU is to map shelter solutions throughout the world in the most vulnerable countries and to come up with a worldwide leading database containing information on all these different shelters. To achieve this goal the tool used was a survey form and special procedure to collect the data, in order to be able to repeat this project in other countries. The following 26 Overview Sheets are the result of the data collected in Burundi. They contain a description of the technical aspects of a construction, according to a layer approach, as well as technical drawings, pictures of details and general information of the different shelters. To get a better understanding of the data collected and the results of the analysis, consult the other publication on Burundi produced by the IFRC SRU entitles “IFRC SRU Shelter Solutions BURUNDI – 1. Overall Report”. Here you may find information and a cross analyze of the different building materials and the different structural points important to shelter construction, as well as results of the analyze and proposals to find ways to improve the different shelters. We kept the anonymity of which organization has built which shelter but wanted to thank UNDP, CARE, Paresi, UNHCR, IFRC, Worldvision, ADRA GIZ, the Luxembourgish Red Cross, the Spanish Red Cross and the Burundian Ministry of solidarity to allow us to document their shelters in the field. Secondly, we would like to thank the people living in these shelters, for allowing us to visit their current homes.
