Shelter And Settlements E-Learning Course
Shelter

InterAction and USAID/OFDA recently launched an online training that provides an overview of the humanitarian community’s shelter and settlements activities, and examines trends based on past experiences and how humanitarian actors can prepare to face emerging challenges. The new shelter and settlements e-learning course is structured around a series of five modules that will walk disaster and emergency relief professionals through the many challenges they might face in the field.

InterAction, in its work to end poverty and help the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people, produces many resources for a wide variety of audiences. These resources support InterAction members and partners in their work, they educate decision makers on humanitarian and development issues, and they bring these issues to the broader public.

These resources show the NGO community’s breadth and depth of work in a nonpartisan and nonpolitical way. They are supported by detailed research from InterAction’s membership and working groups.


NGO Aid MapMaps

In 2010, InterAction released NGO Aid Map, a mapping platform for member projects in different sectors. The maps are a crucial tool to increase NGO transparency to donors, beneficiaries, policymakers and other constituents.
