Abstract: The aim of this abstract is to present SHS (Simple Housing Solution) Project and its latest research results of SHS Multirisk, in line with the Sendai Framework fo Disaster Risk Reduction (2015-2030) and the Paris Agreement on Climate change (2015). The SHS Project (Simple Housing Solution) consists of a methodology for (re) construction of residences and other small buildings, in a colective effort system (community construction), seeking to optimize the available resources and contribute to the organization of the chaos installed during critical situations, such as the pos-disaster or the construction of a routine to mitigate risks. SHS is a spin-off project in a partnership between Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) and University of Aveiro (UA) and proposes a residence model resistant simultaneously to earthquake and hurricane threats, within a specific range of magnitudes to be defined in the design, using simple, low-cost, and environmentally friendly construction technologies when compared to traditional alternatives. The main constructive technology adoptedin the SHS Project is Compacted Earth Blocks - CEBs reinforced masonry. For theseismic load scenarios, the importance of compatibility between materials is highlighted to guarantee the expected performance of the masonry.Former studies indicated the present SHS - Multirisk house model is adequate to 0.2g PGA in class A-D soils (near to Haiti 2018 earthquake's scenario). Currently an improved house model in under research aiming to be implemented in areas with high seismicity.
