THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Around 10,000 flood-affected people have benefited from shelter hubs set up with UNDP support in Kerala in the past eight months. These hubs were established in Wayanad, Pathanamthitta and Idukki districts in support with Life Mission, Kudumbashree, district administration and local self-government. Technical support was provided by the Habitat technology group headed by G Shankar.

Job Zachariah, UN coordinator, Kerala, said, “Shelter hub is a successful innovation. Life Mission project has already set up shelter hubs in 30 places. Techniques and methods on environment-friendly and disaster-resilient houses should be embedded in the curriculum of civil engineering and architecture courses in engineering colleges and diploma schools.”
