Housing, Land, and Property in Shelter Programs

Ongoing course

In this 10-minute Ready to Go Mobile Guide, you will learn how to effectively address housing, land, and property issues in emergencies. This resource provides guidance on dealing with land and property issues, verifying and securing tenure to prevent disputes among displaced people, and establishing long-lasting solutions for communities affected by conflicts or disasters.

This guide was designed by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the Global Protection Cluster Housing, Land and Property Area of Responsibility, and the Global Shelter Cluster, in collaboration with the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation for humanitarian first responders working in shelter, WASH, Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM), livelihoods, and protection.

Ready to Go Mobile Guides, with a downloadable PDF included with the course, are designed specifically for mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) to support learners on the go.
