Building Resilient Housing In Bhutan; Building Better Lives For Women

Resource Type: 
Description: 

The UNDP-UNEP Poverty-Environment Initiative in collaboration with the Representation Office of Denmark supported the Tarayana Foundation to demonstrate how rural communities like the Dak villagers can use natural resources more sustainably and inclusively to improve their standard of living by means of eco-resilient housing. The Dak community traditionally live in provisional homes made of banana leaves and un-treated bamboo, needing replacement every three years and prone to damage from rain and wind.
