For the settlement with centre as life, the immediate events that take place, are risk of natural hazards, environmental changes caused by them, and developmental pressure. They experience excess and shortage of water caused by natural hazards. Use of excess of water helps in generating livelihood for the community and an opportunity as a renewable energy source.
Looking into the existing urban fabric, there has been an attempt to change the density to deal with disaster creating smaller scale of interdependence. The features required at larger scale are intervened at smaller scales. There are changing scales of interdependence, bringing the community together, increasing their communal strength leading in decentralisation. It deals with scale of moving in and out enabling access, rescue, and evacuation.
An important aspect of the design is community participation. Given the diversity of materials used in the region, the community is provided with set of diverse materials instead of a single technology. This enables the community to support their livelihood and to take their skills further, creating empowerment and decentralisation of the community along with collective actions. It would demonstrate the potential for an indigenously – led sustainability transition using renewable energy, water and energy conservation, and high self-sufficiency regional food production. This is enabled by a strong local culture of sufficiency and technologies. Along with social, there is an attempt to create resilience in ecological surroundings.
Resilient community is building a community that is flexible, has ability to absorb, deal with hazards, and return to usual conditions.
