REHABILITAION OF SLUMS
hey, it is very attentive topic, which will demand lot of data collection, for example which site you are looking for, who all are the slum dwellers you are looking forward to relocate/rehabilitate, what is their current activities, and next to it in which field you want them to get employed? and in addition you have to be very carefull when you design for them 'NEW DWELLINGS'(remember they are going to dwell in), about construction material and technologies complimenting to it your full research about them will deliver design. let me find some reference material for you. ALL THE BEST.

Hi Neelam,
Great theme. I invite you to visit the website www.holcimawards.org. Here you will get several ideas for your project relating to various issues concerning sustainable construction. You can also enter your project in this globally prestigious contest that targets practioners and students of sustainable construction. HOLCIM GLOBAL AWARDS FOR SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION is an international competition that rewards designs and visions of innovative, future-oriented and tangible sustainable construction projects.

It is simple to enter as it requires submissions to be made online, without an entry free or any hard copies.

For your specific theme, you will find a solution suggested for Dharavi Mumbai and for a River remediation and resettlement project in Fez Morocco.

THANK YOU ZAKIYAH
YOUR SUGGESTIONS WAS VERY USEFUL. I WILL TRY TO GO THE SAME WAY. ACTUALLY I WAS BIT CONFUSED THAT WHAT KIND OF PROJECT I SHOULD PROPOSE THERE FOR THEIR EMPLOYMENT. FOR THAT I NEED TO CONSIDER THAT THE PEOPLE I WANT TO EMPLOY WILL NOT BE EDUCATED. AND WHEN WE CONSIDER THE RESIDENCE PART,WILL IT BE OK TO PROPOSE A G+ STRUCTURE TO MINIMISE THE GROUND COVERAGE WHICH I CAN USE FOR MY PROJECT

its my pleasure...
i could not understand, your confusion,
just target your clients and those are slum dwellers as far i understood.
you are trustee for them, who will assure them better living conditions. with environmental and economical upliftment. we can assume that these people(client group) will not be well educated but it is your responsibility to find out their skills, and accordingly make fruitfull use of it. believe me they do not have education of today's world but do have skills... they need people like you who can provide them platform.
live case studies will make picture clear to you hopefully, let us know about your progress.
wish u gud luk.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH ONCE AGAIN ZAKIYAH
I WOULD HAVE NEVER THOUGHT THE WAY YOU SUGGESTED ME. ACCORDING TO YOU I SHOULD NOT ONLY CONSIDER MY CLIENT(SLUM DWELLERS) AS UN EDUCATED RATHER I SHOULD GET TO KNOW THERE SKILLS. I KNOW YOU DIDNT GOT MY CONFUSION BUT YOUR SOLUTION HAS NEARLY SOLVED MY CONFUSION. NOW I GOT A START POINT TO THINK.

Neelam, Please can you not use upper case (CAPITALS)because it is the written equivalent of shouting.

Otherwise your idea of having people help to build or repair their own homes is very good because they will have more respect for their area.

In Sri Lanka the Colombo city at presently working on a similar project to pave way for development of the city. Government is promising new houses in and around the city for the displaced slums which lies in prime land. Most of the these people are with there families working presently in Colombo city doing self employment (doing small businesses) and children are going to Colombo city schools. The city is increasing day by day and now has become a densely populated city.
