The housing renewal component is a major part of OCJRP activities since the programme establishment, consisting around 70% of its projects.
This component includes rehabilitation and restoration of individual housing units or comprehensive restoration of residential complexes (AHWASH).
The OCJRP team carefully restores the historic parts of the building or complex according to International standards for conservation and replaces the unsuitable additions by modern spaces compatible with the needs of residents.
The projects also include upgrading and rehabilitation of the infrastructure and networks, provision of sanitary facilities for each family. The team is careful to achieve a balance between responding to the resident needs and improving their living conditions while preserving the historic urban fabric carefully and professionally.
