USING A TOOL FOR PROVISION OF TAILORED POST DISASTER SHELTER SOLUTIONS

In post-disaster emergency shelter aid, relief agencies and other actors with different backgrounds try to cooperate in a tremendously short time and under different circumstances, mostly under time and emotional pressure. Lives depend on the quality of aid and, specifically, on the quality of shelter aid in this case.
In this article we describe a research project that aims to contribute to the optimization of post-disaster shelter aid by implementing a new approach in which the demands for shelters in a specific situation are methodically connected with available and innovative, sustainable shelter solutions. We perform experiments by computer simulations as well as building prototypes to investigate long-term solutions, shape and materialization of the shelter. The conclusions will explain that trust of the users for optimal results in this approach is in addition to data accuracy and data security the key elements.
