The Global Shelter Cluster (GSC) is an Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) coordination mechanism that supports people affected by natural disasters and internally displaced people affected by conflict with the means to live in safe, dignified and appropriate shelter. The GSC enables better coordination among all shelter actors, including local and national governments, so that people who need shelter assistance get help faster and receive the right kind of support.
The GSC is co-chaired by IFRC and UNHCR at the global level. IFRC is the convener of the Shelter Cluster in natural disasters while UNHCR leads the Shelter Cluster in conflict situations.
