Conférence. Humanitarian tents : Thermal performance and internal air quality

11:00 — 12:00 Smart Living Lab

Fribourg

Humanitarian tents are critical to the provision of shelter for people displaced by conflict and natural disasters. UNHCR – the UN agency responsible for providing assistance to refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) – provided emergency shelters to more than 150,000 people in 2018 alone, with tents being the main emergency shelter solution. While intended for emergency shelter, tents are often the the only shelter available for refugees and IDPs for prolonged periods in difficult weather conditions, including extreme heat and cold.

The thermal performances and indoor air quality tests made by the Smart Living Lab enable a comparison of humanitarian tent designs, including a comparison between the Standard Family Tent, which has been the global stalwart of humanitarian response for many years, and a new Geodesic Family Tent.
