"Housing Reconstruction: A Case Study on Gujarat Post Earthquake (2001) Rehabilitation"
One of the most visible and second consequence of disaster is loss of houses after human causalities. To deal with the situation, the humanitarian agencies engaging in post disaster housing reconstruction adopt various approaches ranging from contract driven and agency driven to owner-led approaches. During the recent years concern is more on adopting housing reconstructions which is cultural sensitive. The presentation will focus on housing reconstruction experience in the aftermath of Gujarat earthquake, 2001. Attempt is made to explore the affected people’s perception towards the most adopted housing reconstruction approach (owner driven approach) and will also examine the factors for the success of this approach.
