Solutions are proposed to produce solid and durable emergency shelters on site within days or weeks of the catastrophe, shelters that actually are the core of a new house at affordable cost. Instead of spending funds on temporary shelters the proposal is to start immediately with the erection of solid core units, locally produced and easy to expand later. post-disaster reconstruction, in their own countries and abroad.
