Download Developing Disaster Resilient Housing in Vietnam: Challenges by Tuan Anh Tran PDF

By Tuan Anh Tran

This e-book presents a finished knowing on catastrophe resilient housing in the Vietnam context quite and the constructing international more often than not. The ebook has pointed out the basis explanations of housing vulnerability, regulations to secure housing improvement, options of catastrophe resilient housing, key issues/factors implementers and construction designers have to think about, and methods of attaining resilient housing results in real layout projects.

The layout and improvement of catastrophe resilient housing has been framed into 3 major themes:

(i) group session, (ii) the position of built-environment pros and (iii) layout responses for resilience.  

To in attaining those topics, there's a number of contextual and intervening stipulations that must be addressed and met to supply an permitting setting for selling catastrophe resilient housing. those 3 topics are one of the such a lot debatable concerns in fresh debates and discussions, academically and essentially, concerning catastrophe threat relief and secure housing improvement. furthermore, this e-book additionally offers the evidence-based layout framework for catastrophe resilient housing upon which layout principles and options for secure and resilient housing may be generated and shaped.

As highlighted by the national government, housing is classified as one of the four most vulnerable sectors in Vietnam (MONRE 2008). 2 Housing Vulnerability to Natural Disaster in an Era of Climate Change 21 nificant decline in recent years. For instance, the 2009 and 2013 typhoons also triggered more housing damage than the 2005, 2007 and 2008 typhoons, regardless of the efforts of governmental and non-governmental organisations for disaster risk management. From the working experiences of the researcher and his discussions with DRR experts in Central Vietnam, there are three common driving forces of housing vulnerability identified in this region.

In addition, the link between post-disaster housing reconstruction and the achievement of resilient shelter and settlements has not been discussed and analysed adequately in the housing literature. g. Davis 2011; Ahmed 2011; Chhotray and Few 2012; Ophiyandri et al. 2013) have emphasised the importance of post-disaster housing reconstruction in building long-term resilience for at-risk groups and communities, but there is a lack of specific guidance on how to link reconstruction efforts to resilience enhancement, particularly for Central Vietnam.

Karunasena and Rameezdeen (2010) for a Sri Lankan case; Shaw and Ahmed (2010) for Sri Lankan and Indian cases). These two approaches have commonly been used in post-disaster housing reconstruction in Central Vietnam for years, especially after the big flood in 1999. The flood attracted a lot of international attention to post-disaster housing reconstruction. However, self-built post-disaster housing still receives limited consideration while the donor-built approach is widely discussed and praised in forums and debates, such as the IFRC-funded houses built after the 1999 flood or the HFHfunded houses built after the 2009 typhoon.
