AKAH tests Better Shelter’s modular, upgradable emergency shelter solution

5 February 2021

Better Shelter, a Swedish social enterprise working with the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH) on emergency and transitional housing solutions, has launched a low-cost emergency shelter which can be upgraded with local materials. During 2020, the Better Shelter team piloted "Structure" together with AKAH in Tajikistan and Afghanistan. This year, the enterprise is expected to scale up to provide "Structure" for 10,000 families.
