CO-CREATION OF DIGITAL TOOLKITS FOR ENHANCING THE RESILIENCE OF LOW-INCOME HOUSING IN SELECTED LOCATIONS IN FLORIDA AND PENNSYLVANIA
This study aims to assess engineering design solutions for sustainable, low-cost housing which can be able to withstand extreme heat and flooding disasters. The information will be used in digital toolkits and platforms to provide recommendations to residents in this area to learn the options they can use to make their housing resilient to extreme events and how they can access the information to guide them in the creation of resilient, sustainable and affordable houses in flood and extreme heat prone areas.
The study will interview the subject matter experts for a maximum of one hour to obtain their experiential input on engineering design recommendations in Flood and extreme heat-prone areas in Florida and Pennsylvania. The interview will be on zoom
