Building Community and Social Resilience to Extend the Benefits of Aid for Informal Rural Settlements During the Covid-19 Pandemic

The research uses the case study of informal rural settlements in Chocó, Colombia to evaluate the implications of adopting a ‘Sustainable Livelihoods’ approach in a disaster emergency response framework, rather than the reactive shock relief efforts of humanitarian aid and Government disaster responses.

MORE is a part of Open Studio project run by the School of Architecture + Cities at the University of Westminster to make its design, research and practice-based work available online while it is happening.
