URBAN VILLAGE MODEL (HAITI)

The "Urban Village Model" is an integrated system for developing, building and maintaining the physical environment of small self managed communities in urban settings.  In Haiti, the "Urban Village" is a cohesive physical and social whole--a mini-neighborhood--primarily residential, centered around a shared open space --- "Lakou" in Kreyol.  

The Urban Village Model is not a Disney-like "model village." Rather, it is a systematic method to identify, configure and build housing that creates vibrant communities. Key elements include: integrated planning, design, engineering and construction, on site prototyping with residents, independent infrastructure, and adoption of dynamic social and market channels for scaling and adaptation.
