Beat the flood

When you live in a flood-prone area having somewhere safe to live, which will survive a flood, is important.

In this video Ortis Deley looks at how people in Bangladesh have considered the different properties of materials to determine which are the right ones for the job, and how that has changed their lives for the better.

Helping people build safe, flood-proof houses is a good example of Practical Action’s approach to development…supporting people to have access to the technology that is essential for life.

For other examples of  Practical Action’s work in action please also take a look at these videos:
