Build Change, an award winning non-profit social enterprise
that works with people to
design and build disaster-resistant houses and schools, is innovating on its
experiences over the past 17 years in order to support large scale
post-disaster rebuilding and pre-disaster mitigation efforts in the Asia
Pacific region, Latin America, and the Caribbean. This presentation will
feature a description of Build Change’s work and Theory of Change; its context
relative to the natural disasters and community awareness in Colombia, Haiti
and the Caribbean, the Philippines, Nepal and Indonesia; and the recent
innovations developed by Build Change, with perspective from past experiences.
It will also feature new technologies and methodologies that have been developed
in key aspects of their work, with contributions from American engineers in
several cases. The presentation will also feature an introduction to Build
Change’s new Resilient Housing Guide, which documents the methodology developed
by Build Change to promote resilient housing construction.
