Abstract:During the internship the area development project, the habitat organisation SHF is carrying out together with its partners, has been closely monitored. Main objective in this project is to approach this development in a broad sense, socially as well as physically and economically. First, an introduction to SHF is given. Relevant context information with regard to the organisation and the project executed at the moment in Sri Lanka are taken into consideration. Then the objective of this report has been defined. Objective of the research is to design a research portfolio in which several aspects of the project concept of SHF will be specified as suitable research subject, by combining the project case Inspector Eatham, in Sri Lanka, and relevant literature. In order to design the research portfolio, a generic construction process is described; this structure will provide some clarity in the ordering of the aspects. The international environment in which SHF is carrying out the habitat projects is described, again to cover all possible aspects of the dynamic circumstances. By following the day-to-day activities and working close with the project team a clear view of the ins and outs of the project has been build up. A description of the experiences within this case study is written down in the case study chapter, in which the divergent activities in the process of area development have been considered. Finally, the research portfolio is presented in which the different aspects open for research and development are noted down in a table. This table makes a distinction between research already carried out and future and follow-up research on this subject. The future possibility for R&D has been worked out in Annex 1.
