Young children play in a makeshift fun fair with bombed buildings in the background

Nestled among bombed buildings in Benghazi City, children play; life goes on. Documented stories of self-reconstruction confirm human resilience and a desire to return to normality quickly despite the losses. With such devastation, authorities face a mammoth task rebuilding cities following war. Working with Libyan academics and professionals, we are studying the impact of post-conflict, rapid urban development, to develop reconstruction models to assist authorities in overcoming the difficulties they face.
