Abstract

If all estimated 400,000 families currently displaced in Darfur return to their places of origin and reconstruct their destroyed homes utilizing the traditional building practices, with wood as the main structural element, they will need to find and cut an estimated 16 million mature trees.

In light of the ongoing documented deforestation, this would be an environmental, social, and economic disaster that must be avoided” (source: project document, 2009). This books comprises a summary approach, lessons learnt of UN-Habitat and DFID funded project in Sudan; using stabilized soil blocks in building of dwellings and institutions in the first stages of recovery in Darfur.
