Global Challenges To Sustainable Housing: A Case Study From Nigeria, West Africa
The African continent is getting hotter, drier and more populous. It is the most vulnerable continent to the effects of global warming, and also the least prepared to deal with it. In addition to the political, social and economic challenges, the continent also faces a housing crisis: the housing deficit is upwards of 50 million units and is rising exponentially. Nigeria leads the pack with a staggering housing deficit of 17 million units. In attempting to address these and other environmental issues, CDS designed and built a modular, affordable green housing prototype that is self-cooling, solar-powered and water sufficient. This presentation takes a deep dive into the journey that resulted in the first Eco-Village in Nigeria.
