Background and objective: Today housing in a safe and desirable environment is one of the basic needs of human being. After each disaster, due to damages to permanent residences people lose their shelter and housing, since building the permanent residences for survivors requires a lot of time and money and it is not possible in short and limited time, the subject of temporary residence is raised. Using the palm leaves are common for building where this tree exists. In Baluchistan, structures are constructed with this material, which are used as a house, also was more common in the past.The purpose of this study is to provide a native and inexpensive solution to provide temporary shelter in times of crisis after natural disasters in these areas.

Method: The main sources of this paper are based on documented and library studies and field observations that considered descriptively and conclusively. Thus, based on theoretical studies of the characteristics of the post-disaster temporary settlement and field studies, the characteristics of native herbal settlement made of palm leaves has been determined and finally compare with index to take result.

Findings: It seems that local availability and low cost housing are the reasons of exist this technique until now. This is an indigenous method and people are familiar with it, so in this study the method of making this structure and the areas where materials are available is introduced.

Results: Due to the use of indigenous plant structures in the vicinity of reconstructed houses or sometimes in cities, these structures may now be used as service spaces. Thus, considering the maximum correspondence of the local model index and standard characteristics of temporary settlements, it can be concluded that these native structures have the potential to apply during the crisis in the Balochistan region.
