VIDEO: MOVE UP Alternative Temporary Shelter (ATS) Implementation & Manual

The Moving Urban Poor Communities toward Resilience (MOVE UP) Project set up Alternative Temporary Shelters (ATS) with the community in Cagayan de Oro, Philippines.

The alternative temporary shelter is a range of substitute solutions that intend to immediately address the shelter needs of affected populations in the initial stages of disasters to guarantee human dignity and sustain family and community life.

In 2020, the project released a manual to document and consolidate key information, learnings, and development about ATS systems. Principally made for local government units, the 100-page manual aims to describe the importance and practical applications of the ATS system. It also offers a step-by-step guide on properly adopting and implementing select ATS solutions as a form of shelter response and early actions during emergencies.
