This Special Issue seeks contributions focusing on sheltering and housing in post-disaster settlements. We seek contributions that bridge the humanitarian–development nexus, from pre-disaster resiliency to emergency and temporary shelter, to the long-term development of sustainable housing and settlements. We are interested in contributions which unpack issues of sheltering and housing accessibility, affordability, safety, sustainability, and the associated environmental, social, and economic issues facing displaced populations. We also seek manuscripts which analyze the intersection of built infrastructure systems in post-disaster settlements, such as water, sanitation, power, drainage, and transportation. Contextually, we welcome manuscripts that address response to all types of disasters and conflict.
Papers selected for this Special Issue will be subject to a rigorous peer-review process with the aim of the rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications.
