Shelter after disaster management
New approaches by design driven Innovation
Despite several stakeholders involved in the shelter after disaster management, like academia or the private sector, are focused on the introduction of new products and on direct action, Innovation in shelter after disaster is today more likely to be concerned with improvements in process and more related with facilitation.
Design driven innovation (DDI) is increasingly applied on services, changing realities on individual, organizational or societal levels. It has clear potential in shelter after disaster management to lead the sector on interesting and important new directions, achieving breakthrough innovations and transforming the meaning of shelter as a product into a user’s centered service.
The purpose of the workshop is to show a set of techniques from the DDI approach focused on service design projects and apply them in a disaster context to enhance current practices in shelter management.
The aim of of this workshop is to establish a direction for the ideation of a new meaning of post-disaster shelter through the unique perspective of the participant through an ongoing value co-creation process.
