SHERPA // Your Guide to Sustainable Housing
SHERPA is an easy to use self-evaluation tool for project managers, communities, and other stakeholders involved in the planning, design, construction and assessment of housing projects. SHERPA assesses housing projects from the initial inception of projects through the site selection and design process all the way up to the end of the life cycle and recyclability of building materials used.
SHERPAs holistic approach allows for the assessment of sustainability in terms of environmental, cultural, economic and social sustainability, allowing for a holistic assessment of the impact and sustainability of housing projects.
Our pool of housing experts is ready to provide your organization or institution with further information on SHERPA, or requests for training packages on the SHERPA tool and our approach to sustainable housing. Please contact: email@example.com
SHERPA is supported by the One Planet Network and developed by a team of housing and sustainability experts from UN-Habitat, CRAterre-ENSAG, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and the University of Cambridge, in collaboration with the Kenya Slum Upgrading Programme (KENSUP), Yaam Soldarité and Architecture sans Frontiérs Nepal.
