Pahal: Prakriti Hunar Lokvidya - A Compendium of Rural Housing Typologies
Nov 19, 2016
As the Government of India aims to improve the quality of rural housing through the flagship Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana – Gramin, this study analyses a host of housing typologies from across the country that can be recommended to build quality, sustainable and disaster resilient homes. The study identifies a range of rural technologies, based on locally available skill sets and building materials, that can be adopted immediately by 11 states to realise this vision. The study is a result of a collaboration between the Ministry of Rural Development and the United Nations Development Programme in 10 states, and with the Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi, in 3 states.
