Current technology and systems supporting sustainable construction methods are ill-suited to the conflict-affected, often resource-strapped settings where the ICRC works. This project will adapt and extend existing technology and systems that promote sustainable construction to provide guidance on how to use environmental impact assessment tools in humanitarian action.

Moreover, the project will develop a digital platform that supports the sustainable design, operation and maintenance of humanitarian buildings and infrastructure. The goal of this project is to improve the sustainability of ICRC construction projects, particularly in terms of their impact on water and local habitat.
