Palestine: The Importance of Plastic

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Palestine, Disaster, War & Conflict

In Gaza, Eva Bartlett describes how plastic sheeting is playing an important role: “The siege is still on and cement is still unavailable. Major reconstructions and repairs won’t happen for a long time, just as the thousands of houses needing to be re-built won’t be so until Egypt and Israel allow in building materials. The easiest and really only solution now is simply to lay plastic sheeting over the tin roof [1].”
