Document Type





Despite emerging research on changing stakeholder values after hurricane events, there is limited knowledge on how stakeholders may modify their values on housing resilience after public health crises. An example of such crises is the COVID-19 pandemic, which has altered the home and work environment of many. To address this gap in the literature, this paper analyzes how COVID-19 has impacted multisector stakeholder values on housing resilience. It is mainly based on semi-structured interviews with 50 multisector stakeholders. The results indicate that COVID-19 has impacted stakeholder values on different aspects of housing resilience, such as comfort and health, recreation, design and use of open space, and connectivity. The study’s findings may inform multisector stakeholders (e.g., planners, architects, contractors, engineers, and NGO representatives) on how to better plan, design, and develop value-centered resilient housing systems that take into account the challenges faced in a public health crisis.
