Samenvatting

Catastrophes like wars and natural disasters have occurred over ages. However, the last decade the amount of emergency situations has increased in a frightening way. Unsustainable human behaviour causing environmental changes and social conflicts undoubtedly contributes to this increase. A global approach for shelter intervention may contribute to efficient relief while supporting a transition from aid to development and helping to prevent future catastrophes. In this paper one investigates how the 4-dimensional design strategy developed at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (department of Arch & MeMC) can be implemented to reach this goal.
