Sustainable Buildings and Construction Case Studies - LAC
The building and construction sector is increasingly under pressure from authorities and the public to address environmental and social issues. Nevertheless, sustainable development in the sector remains hampered by limited coordination between different stakeholders throughout a building's life span. This is why it is necessary to create conditions and incentives that address and encourage all stakeholders to promote jointly sustainable building practices.
The sustainable buildings and construction programme developed 21 case studies on projects being implemented in Latin America and the Caribbean, including the impacts, replicability and scalability, and main challenges of each project.
