Abstract : This paper evaluates the current conditions of Gambia and Senegambia Region low-income tropical housing with a focus on construction methods and materials in order to identify the key areas for improvement. Surveys are carried out to collect relevant information on prevailing construction methods/materials and on their environmental impacts in rural areas. Low quality, high waste, and energy intensive production methods, as well as excessive soil extraction and deforestation, are identified as the main environmental damage of the current construction methods and materials. The embodied energy is highlighted as the key area which should be addressed to reduce the CO2 emissions of low-income tropical housing. The results indicate that the embodied energy of fired bricks in Gambia more than general clay Keywords - Affordable Bamboo, Climate Change, Sustainability
