Housing in Developing Countries – Areas of Concern

Low Cost, Energy Efficient & EnvironmentEnvironmentFriendly Housing Technologies for Developing Countries
12th September,2007 R.K. Celly Executive Director

Severe shortage of houses in developing countries specially for poor people. Severe problem of management of agro industrial waste in developing countries. Mounting pressure on non renewable energy resources. Non-availability of energy efficient technologies for converting agro industrial waste and renewable local resources into alternative materials Expensive & scarce building materials and components.

Building Materials & Technology Promotion Council Ministry of Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation Government of India

Housing in Developing Countries – Issues & Opportunities
• Need for energy efficiency and environmental protection in manufacturing technologies. • Need to develop cost effective construction technologies to mitigate the effects of natural hazards. • Need to create employment and skill improvement opportunities leading to poverty alleviation. • Need to substitute expensive & scarce building materials and components by low cost locally available materials to suit local design typologies.

Major Causes of High Building Costs
Expensive materials Lack of necessary building skills Lack of guidelines in selection of appropriate building packages • Designs • Materials • Methods • equipment

Low Cost or Cost Effective Housing
Aims to reduce the cost of construction and at the same time not sacrifice any element of safety or serviceability of the house over the life cycle.

Various aspects for cost reduction
Optimisation of land use Functional design of buildings Optimum use of building materials Rationalisation of specifications New construction materials and techniques

There is need for adoption of : • strong, • • durable, • • functional, • • aesthetic, • environment friendly, • • ecologically appropriate,

energy efficient affordable and adaptable cost-effective materials appropriate technologies in construction.

Utilization of waste materials even if no saving is achieved. Saving in quantum of skilled labour even if no saving in cost is achieved. buildings provide better thermal comfort that results in conservation of operational energy. thus improving waste management & environmental protection Utilises local resources Substitutes wood – preserving forest cover Substitutes top soil – preserving soil for agriculture 11 12 . Achieving better utilization of equipment but not necessary leading to optimum saving in cost. Saving in time of construction. Saving in consumption of imported or scare materials.
