UK Shelter Forum 28: Climate Change

The 28th UK Shelter Forum was held on the 13th of May 2022.  It was co-hosted by the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) and University College London’s Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction (UCL IRDR).  The theme was humanitarian shelter and climate change: Is the shelter sector ready?

The UK Shelter Forum was preceded by a workshop on scaling-up the use of low-impact materials in humanitarian response hosted by Arup and a UCL Humanitarian Institute Evening Conference on Shelter and Climate Change.

The 28th UK Shelter Forum was the first in person UK Shelter Forum after the Covid-19 pandemic and the first hybrid UK Shelter Forum.  More than 100 people attended in person with a similar number joining online.  Online speakers and participants included shelter specialists working in Australia, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Yemen, South Sudan, Nigeria, Madagascar, Switzerland, Italy, the US, Honduras and Chile.
