Abstract

Items that bring relief after a war or disaster, such as shelters, often find their origin in other industries. In the last years the SRG did a number of product developments of disaster response items. At the same time, they did dozens of product development trajectories for the building industry. In this paper the product development for the building industry is compared with the shelter industry, with the aim to find the similarities and differences and to learn from it. The goal is to give the reader insight into the specific conditions that apply to product development for the humanitarian sector and especially in sheltering and housing. Due to the complexity not all aspects are discussed, also not all knowledge or all cases are written down in respect to the paper length. The results show that "why (shelter) innovation in the humanitarian sector is scarce" is mostly of non-technical nature.
