New humanitarian shelter and settlements course

The agreement between the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Society (IFRC) and the UIC, enables the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) to offer a three week 6 credit course on humanitarian shelter and settlements for posts-conflict and post-disaster situations. The course trains students with the protocols and expertise of IFRC as the main international organization in post-disaster situations, as well as the expertise of The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in post-conflict situations.

The course will be taught from the 6th to the 31st of October 2014 at UIC. People interested in taking the course must register now. The course is aimed at persons involved in relevant fields as well as those who want to work in the fields of post-disaster, post-conflict and reconstruction. Students enroled in the course will be able to effectively plan and coordinate needs assessments, and develop and implement strategies and protocols for emergency relief situations, camp planning, and physical reconstruction while contemplating community empowerment.

For further information on the course you can visit UIC’s website.

    Hi,

    I am a Spanish architect and very interested in participating in the course, I am currently working in the Philippines on a post-typhoon field. I probably cannot make it for the current dates. Is this a course that will be happening yearly? Every semester? I would like to know also the actual program with further detail. Does it consist on subjects? blocks? or lectures only?
    Thanks.
