A Practical Guide to Climate–resilient Buildings & Communities

Tue 6th July 2021, Online

Come and join us for the launch of A Practical Guide to Climate–resilient Buildings & Communities. This UNEP publication demonstrates how buildings and community spaces can be constructed to increase their resilience to climate change, especially in developing countries where structures are largely self–built. The practical guide provides an overview of the fundamental types of interventions at the building scale, including the use of nature–based solutions. Crucially, it offers construction solutions to adapt to a range of different risks in various climates. For instance, it shows us how to reduce indoor heat in hot and arid climates, or how to mitigate cyclone impacts on buildings in hot and humid climates.
