Hello Jon, congratulations on your idea making it through thus far and good luck for the next phase! You provide a compelling solution which solves for safety, dignity and a hope for a future functional community. I had similar questions of water systems and drainage and happy to see those are being considered and solved. As we know, in most refugee camps, settlements happen urgently and rapidly resulting with poor infrastructure which become hard to correct as the camps grow in size. However, your team seems to be getting closer to a grass roots solution that is resourceful and community engaging. I encourage you guys to think of ways to streamline this infrastructure and habitat methodology and distribute it online so that it could be picked up in other parts of the world and applied as the need arises ( which I hope would never happen ) . It would be fantastic to raise awareness on the Super Adobe method and have it be an educational booklet that circulates around.
