Take a look at the video and the stark images of refugees around the world. From Syria, the Sudan, Afghanistan, Iraq. Across the globe, some 45 million people have been forced from their homes by political conflict or violence. That's the highest in 18 years, according to the U.N.
For this grim world, there is perhaps a bit of good news on the horizon. The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees currently has two options for emergency shelter – a tent or a tent. Anyone who's ever slept in a tent knows it's far from optimal for long-term stays. Along comes the Ikea Foundation, the charitable arm of the furniture giant.
Armed with its wealth of experience mass producing big items that pack up small, it allied with the refugee housing unit and came up with a hard-sided shelter, powered by solar, that even the tallest Somalis can stand up in. It packs up flat and is expected to cost about $1,000. Fifty-six of these prototypes are en route to refugee camps in Ethiopia, Lebanon and northern Iraq for testing. Just don't lose the instruction manual – or the little wrench that comes in the box.
