This is a short presentation that was given at the Shelter Centre Meeting 17 on October 6, 2017 by Vidushi Dwivedi, Resilient Reconstruction and Recovery Intern at Northwestern University and Jennifer Pepson Elwood, Manager of the Green Recovery Connect Helpdesk. The presentation provides an overview of the challenges with meeting global demands for building materials while reducing disaster risk and supporting environmentally responsible development. The expansion of the Building Material Selection and Use: An Environmental Guide (BMEG) with our partners at Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering is also discussed.
