UK Shelter Forum 22

The 22nd UK Shelter Forum will be on the 8th of June in London, co-hosted by CARE and Habitat for Humanity. We are grateful to Hogan Lovells for providing the venue.

The theme of the forum will be The Future of Shelter.

Two years after the World Humanitarian Summit, humanitarian reform remains high on the agenda. Multi-purpose cash offers opportunities and challenges to sectoral objectives, the ‘humanitarian-development nexus’ asks questions of who does what in shelter responses, the gaps between humanitarian needs and funding are ever-growing, and conflict and displacement are increasing. How will the shelter sector respond and adapt in the future? Will there be continued incremental change, or major disruption? How much does the shelter sector need to challenge itself to change? UKSF 22 will examine these questions, and what the future holds for the shelter sector and the people it seeks to help.

Agenda & submissions

The detailed agenda will be posted here in due course. At least half the day will be allocated strictly to discussions and short presentations relevant to the theme. There will opportunities for general announcements and short (5 or 10 minute) presentations.

If you wish to submit a proposal for a session, announcement, or short presentation, please send it to ukshelterforum2013@gmail.com by Friday 11th May. 

Priority will be given to submissions in line with the theme. Submissions not in line with the theme, or which are submitted after the deadline, might be not accommodated in the agenda. We will not be able to confirm if submissions have been accepted until after the 11th of May.

There will be side events arranged on the 7th of June, including the Global Shelter Cluster Mid-Year Teleconference at CARE’s offices in Vauxhall.
