ANDREA NIELD CURRICULUM VITAE
Humanitarian architectural assistance: Projects must evolve out of collaborative engagement thereby allowing culturally specific and sustainable outcomes for communities, so that in future they are self-reliant during natural disasters and can anticipate climate change by having the tools and knowledge to deal with them. Responding to the real needs of endangered communities with professional assistance, EAA work involves advocating good design, planning and maintenance programs as an important element in humanitarian public policy.
