Comprehensive reconstruction in Guerrero

As part of the third phase of the Comprehensive Reconstruction of Habitat Project in communities of the Montaña region of Guerrero, affected by hurricanes Ingrid and Manuel in 2013, the construction of the second Indigenous Education Center in the community of Ojo de Agua restarted after it was suspended due to the raining temporary. The first one was built in La Ciénega in May.

The support of the people of the community, in collaboration with the field team and with the community promoter Grabiel Cantú, has been decisive to continue with the different processes. It is foreseen that these will show substantial advances through December.

In addition, a piece of land was designated for the construction of the Sustainable Classroom with reinforced adobe at the Intercultural University of Guerrero State based on the connection established since 2017; and Cooperación Comunitaria agreed to develop four practical workshops each month from January thru June 2019, during the constructive process.

The classroom itself will serve to strengthen the recovery of traditional knowledge among the young people in the region. There, the implementation of theoretical and practical workshops will continue, whose purpose is to diminish vulnerability through the analysis of territorial risk and through the construction of different ecotechnies —such as dry toilets and firewood saving stoves—, as well as the models of reinforced housing against the impact of the earthquakes in their home communities, located in different municipalities of the region.

Also, as part of the collaboration with the University, a recording studio in their building was set to our disposal, which can be used to continue the production of radio capsules that can make people aware of themes related to social production of habitat. Those could be disseminated in community media and commercial media, as well as in the digital platforms of Cooperación Comunitaria AC.

Besides, next December 4 we will participate in the activities of the University’s Week of Involvement, to which we were invited to talk about how we first connected with the institution and about the collaborative work from then until now.

Currently, a series of interviews have been carried out with people who live in houses built with traditional adobe, with the reinforced system proposed by Cooperación Comunitaria and with industrial materials to compare and develop an analysis based on multiple indicators of habitability defined throughout the project in the different communities we worked at.

During the previous two stages of the project, we developed diagnoses in response to the emergency post-disaster, and recovery of traditional knowledge to develop a proposal of reinforced adobe housing against the strong earthquakes and winds in the region, adapted to the local weather and culture, in some communities of the municipality of Malinaltepec.
