Construction and Transport

Construction and Transport

Safe and secure shelter is a fundamental basic human need. For vulnerable people whose lives and livelihoods are threatened by climate related and natural hazards, there is a growing demand for reconstruction disaster-resistant housing at scale.

While building community housing, it is important to consider optimum use of local labour, using locally produced building materials and construction techniques that are affordable, and approaches that are truly participatory and people-centred. By also improving transport and infrastructure, those without the means to previously do so are able to access markets where they can buy or sell goods for income, and make better use of essential services such as health and education. This collection provides various resources on construction and transportation that can help communities build better housing and find ingenious solutions to transportation challenges.
