UN-Habitat with partners sharing knowledge on bamboo construction


UN-Habitat and the United Architects of the Philippines (UAP) Capiz chapter have been working together to develop a standard design for shelter that will be adopted in the community driven shelter recovery.

UN-Habitat initiated a number of meetings with UAP and the Hilti Foundation, where both organizations shared their knowledge on local construction practices.

The Hilti Foundation introduced their experiences on designing and implementing bamboo shelters in the Philippines, and helped initial shelter designs to be improved.

UN-Habitat is anticipating further discussions aimed at harmonizing different technical inputs into the final shelter design.
