Title: Comparative Assessment of Indian Post-Disaster Temporary Housing Strategies
Authors: Biswas A.

Published in: Journal of Architectural Engineering
Abstract: Risks to communities arise due to their inability to adapt to the impacts of natural disaster, technological bottleneck, and knowledge and capacity constraints. In this situation it is important to learn from the good cases and enrich knowledge and capacity to build resilience. Post-disaster shelter strategy is an important attribute of resiliency development. Therefore, this paper examines India's post-disaster shelter strategies by comparing them with equivalent practices in Japan and Indonesia. The objectives of this paper are to review the literature on definitions, challenges, and best practices of post-disaster temporary shelter and temporary housing, to examine the effectiveness of housing recovery through case studies from Japan (2011) and Indonesia (2004) and compare it with the Indian case (2004), and to explore future policy for better practice in Indian post-disaster housing strategies. The paper follows a case study approach for responding to the objectives. © 2019 American Society of Civil Engineers.
