A Roof Still Standing : Building Disaster Resilience in Odisha

Between 2000 and 2007, UNDP partnered with the Government of Odisha to promote housing technologies that could enable people to build safer and more resilient homes in highly vulnerable areas of the Odisha coast. The project, which was supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and Care Today, constructed more than 60 buildings that demonstrated that a combination of low-cost disaster resilient building technologies and indigenous building materials could help people build structures to withstand natural disasters.
