Lean Reconstruction of Camps for Displaced Populations and Refugees

Back to search results

The need to develop resilient camps, shelters and buildings for displaced populations, refugees and disaster-stricken communities has been a long-standing concern for policy makers in developing countries. Slow disaster response, poor construction planning, ad-hoc decision-making, haphazard recovery, poor quality, material wastage, environmental damage, and cost and time overruns are common problems in reconstructing critical built infrastructure and environments for displaced populations and refugees. This project presents a new approach to the construction of temporary camps and permanent buildings for displaced populations and refugees by the innovative application of lean principles which have been applied successfully in other industries to improve processes efficiency and effectiveness.
