Our Consultancy & Projects

We provide expertise for sustainable reconstruction after disasters

CRSCAD is the only institution of its kind dedicated to raising awareness and offering expertise in global post-disaster reconstruction with an emphasis on the following areas: the built environment and spatial design (urban planning and architectural design; landscape architecture; environmental justice; and community resilience, to name but a few).

We promote human dignity and social justice

CRSCAD jointly develops comprehensive short-, medium-, and long-term responses to post-disaster conditions with the survivors, their governments, grassroots organizations, and other relevant agencies and stakeholders.

We promote capacity building

CRSCAD offers distinctive graduate and professional development courses through the College of Advancing and Professional Studies. Course topics address vital issues from security threats to vulnerable populations after disasters: economic, water, food, health, environmental, personal, community, and political.
