Yasmeen Lari’s Zero Carbon Pono pilot villages, after attaining the first stage of fulfilment of rights based needs, basic flood mitigation measures and food security procedures, are moving on to the next stage of development. In the second stage primary education and primary health arrangements become essential. This is the village clinic built entirely through their own resources by Maa (Mothers) Committees as part of their own initiatives to achieve better health and improved living conditions.

‘RIBA has heralded a new direction for the profession, encouraging all architects to focus not only on the privileged but also humanity at large that suffers from disparities, conflicts and climate change. There are innumerable opportunities to implement principles of circular economy, de-growth, transition design, eco-urbanism, and what we call Barefoot Social Architecture (BASA) to achieve climate resilience, sustainability and eco justice in the world.❞
