Sustainable construction in tropical and hot climates
In a context of massive urbanization - particularly in areas with hot climates, how could buildings be built (or renovated) that are both comfortable for their occupants and energy efficient? How can we do without air conditioning systems, which are energy-intensive and expensive? From Australia to overseas departments, from South Asia to Africa, how to invent and disseminate effective constructive systems, often based on ancestral techniques revisited?
This community offers you the opportunity to exchange information on actions carried out in the field of sustainable construction and energy efficiency of buildings adapted to the tropical environment (news, debates, Research and Development and to share best practices...). It will address both the problems of construction in dry or humid tropical climates (Latin America, DROMs, South-East Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa) and arid sub-climates (North African countries in particular).
