Addressing Zim’s water challenges through green buildings

Contextually, the Sadc region continues to suffer from the effects of climate change, and Zimbabwe has not been spared by the temperature extremities and rainfall variabilities that often precipitate into droughts. This has created a water crisis, both in urban and rural areas, further exacerbated by water leakages, contaminations, and inefficiencies in our traditional water systems.

Is Zimbabwe ready for green building standards?

Digging into history, the global industrial revolution occurred in two phases, between 1750 and 1850, and the second industrial revolution between 1850 and 1914 respectively. The industrial revolution also occurred in three waves, with the first wave covering Great Britain, France, Belgium, the United States of America, and Germany. The second wave occurred in Italy, Spain, and Portugal to mention a few, with the last wave covering Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Save for the Asian Tigers, to date, the economic prosperity of global nations still follows these waves, with first movers still enjoying the early bird fruits, and late comers still picking up the pieces.

Addressing climate change the green building way

Under this dark cloud, what we remain certain of is the depletion of wetlands, massive deforestation that has not been matched by forestation efforts, and a high frequency of droughts and extreme weather outside the natural limits of the traditional savanna climate. We have become victims of global warming.

The case for the green building concept in Zim

A green building is one whose construction and lifetime of operation assure the healthiest possible environment while representing the most efficient and least disruptive use of land, water, energy, and resources. The optimum design solution is one that effectively emulates all the natural systems and conditions of the pre-developed site after the development is complete.
