Intergouvernementele segmenten

  1. Reconstructing after Disasters: Build Back Better. Comments may include the need for building codes to be based on UD principles and allow easy and safe accessibility to all. It may be worth providing some concrete example and mentioning that if accessibility is taken into account then it is only 2% of the total cost
