We have urged the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, as the lead humanitarian agency in the region, to co-ordinate the development of a comprehensive approach for Kosovars during the winter. The strategy for shelter provision will include a combination of methods—hard shelter, winterised tents and repair and rehabilitation of existing structures.
In a number of well-established camps and collective centres, elected refugee representatives are feeding information to camp managers, and in turn to agencies, international organisations and donors, about the 72W problems and needs of the refugee population. Planning for winter is among the topics of discussion between these parties.
