Seki Hirano is CRS’ senior technical advisor for shelter and settlement.  He began his career as a commercial architect in London, and joined the humanitarian sector after the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami.  Now, he often finds himself among the first on the ground in emergencies like the current one in the Philippines in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan — overseeing efforts to get a roof back over the heads of people displaced by disaster.

He speaks here about adapting experience gleaned from past emergencies to meet the particular needs of those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
