Handbook for the design of temporary collective accommodations in the Americas

Document language
Document Type
The manual is a reference guide that provides key recommendations for the spatial planning and design of Temporary Collective Shelters in the Americas. These recommendations are based on the practical experiences accumulated by different actors in the lodging sector and other service providers. The intention of this manual is to provide the reader with criteria that will help him/her make decisions when planning and defining the location and characteristics of the different spaces that make up a Temporary Collective Accommodation. Likewise, the intention is to assess the impact that spatial decisions have on the welfare of the people assisted and their environment, with special focus on Protection, Health and Environment. The manual will be useful both for interventions in existing buildings and for new constructions.
