Pham Thi Huong Giang (Jang Keu) – Founder of The Resilient Housing Program, President of Sống Foundation.
Assoc. Dr. Architect Nguyen Hanh Nguyen – Editor of the “Safe Housing Handbook”.
Architect Dinh Ba Vinh – Architect of the Resilient Housing Program, an Officer in Central Vietnam of the Resilient Housing Program.
Starting from Ha Tinh and the rocky valley of Tan Hoa, Quang Binh – the place famous for its flood level “beyond the electricity pole”, the Resilient Housing Programe has built and tested 9 models of safe housing to cope with floods in Quang Ninh, Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Nam, Khanh Hoa, Soc Trang and Hau Giang.
By the end of 2019, the Resilient Housing Program has provided technical and financial support to more than 700 households to build safe houses in 7 localities across the country. In the context of increasingly complex natural disasters and extreme weather events in Vietnam, more and more households need guidance, attention and technical assistance in building safe houses. For this reason, we boldly record and share the experiences we have accumulated through the “Safe Housing Handbook”.
The “Safe Housing Handbook” includes detailed models of houses that are capable of adapting to typical types of storms and floods in Vietnam, through detailed studies in various project areas that we have done in Vietnam in the years 2013-2019. Hopefully, with this Handbook, local people and authorities, non-profit organizations, experts and interested individuals can refer to, and apply a suitable housing model that is able to adapt well to the local disaster context and family budget.
This event summarizes our sharing about the Resilient Housing Program, Co-Design implementation methods, safe housing models and our experiences over the past 6 years. We are looking forward to welcoming and discussing with architects, professionals, sponsors and those who are interested in this topic.
