This book contains summaries of shelter projects that have been implemented in response to conflicts, complex emergencies, and natural disasters (Section A). It also contains a section entitled Opinions (Section B). These are summaries of significant issues in humanitarian shelter provision, written by shelter practitioners with specific interests and experiences. A full list of case studies contained in all four editions: Shelter Projects 2008, Shelter Projects 2009, Shelter Projects 2010 and Shelter Projects 2011–2012 can be found in Annex 1.

The case studies in this book were implemented by many different organisations, a full list of which can be found in the acknowledgements section (page iv). In order to allow weaknesses as well as strengths of programmes to be openly shared, the case studies are not directly attributed to individual organisations. Host government projects are not included. As a result of the projects being implemented in diverse and often challenging conditions, they illustrate both good and bad practices. From every case study there are lessons that can be learnt, and aspects that may be repeated or need to be avoided.
