The Role Of Green Projects In Displaced Communities
Field researcher discovers the benefits of eco-projects in turbulent, poverty-stricken zones.
Lamya Hussain embarked on an interesting research project a couple of years ago when she traveled to the West Bank and Lebanon to study issues of health and health care in refugees camps. In her work, she discovered the resident's deep interest in greening projects and rooftop gardening in particular for the alleviation it can potentially provide to deteriorating health standards and unemployment.
PSFK talked to Lamya to get a better understanding of her experience, research, and insights into the benefits of greening projects in displaced communities.
