San Andreas Itzapa, Guatemala: The Impact of a High-Aid Housing Program.
MetadataShow full item record
This study was conducted in December 1976 and January 1977 for INTERTECT as one part of a series of case studies, interviews and reports being prepared for the United Nations Disaster Relief Office (UNDRO) to help determine the role and effect of emergency shelter following disasters. San Andreas Itzapa was selected for the study because of the intensive reconstruction aid which it received. The Canadian Government spent nearly two million dollars on the town, first aiding with machinery for rubble clearance, then providing materials and organizing for the construction of 1,600 semi-permanent houses and eight schools, all within a few months of the earthquakes of February 4, 1976.
