A home is a first line of defense
A home is a first line of defense against natural and unnatural disasters ; a badly built home is a weapon against its owner. Every year natural disasters mostly (Hurricanes & Earthquakes,) and poor construction standards cause countless destruction worth well over $100,000,000 and kill hundreds of people across the Caribbean and Latin America.
In addition, the lack of adequate housing is a problem throughout Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Almost 40 percent of families in the region live in a house beyond repair, have no title, or lack water, sewerage, electricity, adequate building materials, or space. It is estimated that by 2015, that number will increase by 10 percent. Only an investment of at least $310 billion will close the region’s current housing gap, that is 7.8 percent of LAC’s GDP.
The social benefits of building houses extend well beyond the physical advantages of increasing space and adding securely built structures. Existing studies reveal a positive correlation between improved housing and family health, children’s education, and a family’s overall well-being. Moreover, a home is the greatest asset owned by most families, providing financial security as well as the potential for income (via rental or home-based business activity), financial leveraging, or resale.
In Latin America and the Caribbean, majority of families housing are built informally, without technical designs, compliance with construction codes or urban development guide -lines, professional oversight, or formally-trained labor. Low-income families, seeking to keep costs low, find it hard to justify the added expense of paying for technical plans and oversight. As a consequence, construction is often poorly designed in terms of the use of space, lighting, and, more importantly, structural soundness. This is particularly critical in geographic areas that face the risk of natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods.
Additionally, these families tend to purchase construction materials in small quantities and stockpile them informally until they have enough to undertake a project. The quality of these supplies varies widely, and poor storage practices result in a high percentage of damage and loss. Labor is frequently provided by family members, friends, or someone within their network of trusted acquaintances, rather than by persons with professional qualifications. Thus, the construction quality of a vast majority of families homes ultimately rests in the hands of these informally trained builders.
