Socioeconomic Vulnerabilities and Housing Reconstruction in Puerto Rico After Hurricanes Irma and Maria

In 2017, Hurricanes Irma and Maria caused extensive flooding in Puerto Rico. To ensure safe building practices and access to resources, it is crucial to identify households that may be more likely to engage in informal reconstruction and its associated risks. In a world where informality is often thought of as "inevitable," socioeconomic vulnerability is a useful map to recognize these trends as vulnerability can limit a household's ability to participate in the formal building industry, requiring those households to seek other means of recovery. The results from this report will help housing recovery services to identify households that are more likely to engage in informal housing development and ensure they receive the correct assistance and assistance to promote safe recovery.
