Build Change is an award winning non-profit
social enterprise that has worked as a systems’ change catalyst in the housing
sector in 24 countries, both to mitigate risk for future hazards and to recover
and rebuild after a disaster, with a mission to prevent housing loss caused by
disasters. Resilient housing can only be achieved at scale when the three main
barriers: people, money and technology are addressed simultaneously to provide
solutions. To best contribute, structural engineers must understand their role,
not only in building the supply of resilient housing through technical
solutions, but also how that work integrates with the larger resilient housing
ecosystem. This webinar will introduce
Build Change’s theory of change, addressing aspects of people, money and
technology; provide examples of how technical solutions were brought together
with financial, social and policy solutions to make housing more resilient in
both preventive as well as post-disaster scenarios in Colombia, Haiti and the
Caribbean, the Philippines, Nepal and Indonesia; and feature an introduction to
the newly released Build Change Guide to Resilient Housing, an essential
handbook for governments and practitioners seeking to plan and implement
programs for more resilient housing.
