Here is my best explanation:

'understanding' is the definition.
(entente cordiale is a kind of understanding)

'directions about shelter put up in centre' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'directions' could be 'en' (I've seen this in other clues) and 'en' is located in the answer.
'about' could be 'c' (abbreviation for 'circa') and 'c' is found within the answer.
'shelter' could be 'tent' (tent is a kind of shelter) and 'tent' is present in the answer.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).
