Book Cover: After the Tsunami - Sustainable Building Guidelines
ISBN: 978-92-807-2782-1
Pages: 66

In the aftermath of the Tsunami disaster, numerous agencies have responded by reconstructing houses and infrastructure. Project managers, however, are often overwhelmed not only by the volume of required activities but also by the extent of challenges related to reconstruction.

One of the challenges is to ensure conceptually sound, robust and practical reconstruction solutions that will minimise the environmental impact. This manual addresses that challenge by providing project managers with guidance in various aspects of sustainable reconstruction, including planning, design, materials, implementation, and maintenance. The manual includes the areas of adequate site selection, construction  technologies and their social acceptance, cost-effectiveness and affordability of housing, technical infrastructure and access to information.
