Informazione generale

The project MODEL OF COMMUNITY RESILIENCE: TERRITORY, MEMORY AND GENDER consists on strengthening and providing adequate accompaniment to communities in risk areas affected by the 2017 earthquake, giving continuity to the process that we have been developing since the stages of emergency, rehabilitation and reconstruction. The link generated with the community has allowed us to better understand their needs. We believe it is necessary to continue working in the community of Nueva Urbina, in the municipality of Pijijiapan. Currently, this process would be aimed at prevention, within the framework of comprehensive risk management, for the prevention of socio-natural disasters. At this stage, we propose the following line of work, based on community participatory strategies:

  • Earth and memory: it consists on the rehabilitation of adobe houses to repair partial damage and reduce risks of future disasters, cultivating a culture of risk prevention and constructive autonomy. It also proposes the recovery of the historical memory of these houses as a strategy to strengthen intergenerational ties, through restauration of vernacular housing and the preservation of traditions for future generations.

Descrizione del progetto. Caratteristiche, punti di forza e peculiarità.

Project Features:
In the bio-reconstruction and rehabilitation of damaged adobe housing there is a political and moral stance where health, nature, social and cultural life benefit. In addition, it promotes communities' constructive autonomy . It is essential for the preservation of peasant cultural identity that architectural heritage includes rural vernacular forms, instead of focusing the attention on urban environments, such as the historical centres which tell colonial, exploitative and extraction-based history only.
Two years after the events, affected communities are used to live in their damaged houses, which has evidently increased their vulnerability to potential future disasters.
The BioReconstruye Collective proposes participatory methodologies because the greater the community participates in a project, the better the process will be adapted to the social and cultural context, and therefore, the greater the likelihood of achieving long-term sustainability.
The project has 3 main focuses: gender, basin and community.
During the realization of the project, community workshops will also be held, which ensure that the knowledge acquired will not only stay within the circle of families benefiting from the reconstruction of adobe housing but will reach more people. Being a participatory processes, people will acquire a living experience and with it, adapt what they have learned to the needs of other adobe houses damaged by the earthquake or deteriorated by abandonment inside and outside their communities.

General Objective:
Preserve the architectural cultural heritage of 3 damaged rural adobe vernacular houses in the community of Nueva Urbina, Chiapas.

Specific Objectives:
Recover the historical memory of the generations that inhabit the 3 adobe houses.
Strengthen the intergenerational affective bonds of families.
Increase women's participation in both decision-making and house rehabilitation efforts.

Motivazione e a chi si dirige il progetto

After the 2017 earthquake, a network of spontaneous responses is generated by individuals and collectives in the six affected states, including the BioReconstruye Mexico Network. Specifically, in the state of Chiapas, BioReconstruye México Chiapas performs the emergency work.
The disaster cycle includes the stage before, during, and after the disaster, which merges again with the stage before, during and after the next disaster. And so on, since geophysical phenomena (earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions) and hydrometeorological (hurricanes, heavy rains) are not going to stop happening. After the return to daily life, the work to reduce vulnerability, identifying existing risks and prevent future risks becomes indispensable. In this way, we will be building a culture of resilience, understood as the ability of individuals and a community to respond and adapt; that is, the ability to leverage experience to project the future. In this way, we will not start from scratch in the face of a new disaster situation and will reduce the risk over time.
We will run the project in the community of Nueva Urbina, Pijijiapan, Chiapas, (Mexico) and we will carry out our work considering women as fundamental agents in community management capacity, since their organizational experience to sustain life is critical in reacting and preventing a disaster. This women's organization, responsible for reproduction, resource management and care, remains unseen, so it is essential that it moves from the periphery to a central role in decision-making.
Similarly, this invisible organization is based on community ties and is this social fabric one of the most important protective factors that will ensure the reduction of risk. This community perspective provides us with the participatory tools to generate an exchange between the collective and the community, in an exercise of autonomy.

Esperienza previa e team

Currently, we are a transdisciplinary team of four women working with natural construction, appropriate technologies and agroecology, through horizontal practices.
We carried out our work in communities in the state of Chiapas (Tonalá, Pijijiapan and San Cristóbal de Las Casas), which were affected by the earthquake of september 7, 2017. The following work was carried out:

  • structural diagnosis in more than 75 houses in 5 locations.
  • the reconstruction of 15 houses of adobe, pajarcilla and cob.
  • the rehabilitation of 2 adobe houses and a school.
  • the construction of 24 saving stoves.
  • the implementation of 6 community safe water systems.
  • the implementation of 6 sanitation modules for grey water.
  • 6 workshops on living in risk areas and 6 participatory murals.
  • 4 workshops on agroecological systems.
  • 6 performances of the theatrical play 'Rebuilding us'.
  • survey of material and editing of 6 audiovisual newsletters.
    Thanks to the experience of these 2 years of accompaniment to the affected communities we have learned that, after having lived a disaster, the community's reconstruction efforts foster the cohesion of the social fabric.
