Redesign disaster 1

The “Redesign disaster” project proposes a housing module for African communities with difficulties accessing water, integrating a roof with a system for purifying condensed water and rainwater using energy produced by solar panels. This solution would allow families to become self-sufficient in drinking water and thus improve their personal hygiene and minimise the risk of diseases related to the use of contaminated water. The roof has the capacity to purify 160 litres of water, which would be used mainly for taps and sanitation systems in the house. The design of this module also allows for a more efficient ventilation of the house, respecting the traditional style of the houses in African communities.

The project contributes to achieving the following Sustainable Development Goals: SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation)
