This document is drafted in three parts to show (1) the recommendations for responses of the Shelter Cluster to natural disasters in Vanuatu, (2) recommended shelter and non food items (NFI) technical specifications for relief and recovery phases of a response and (3) case studies and key references. These are based upon the emergency shelter response to Tropical Cyclone Pam in 2015. In Vanuatu, the Shelter Cluster is led by the Government of the Vanuatu Public Works Department and co-led by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).
