In excitement as we prepare towards an AFIELD Trip in 2024 to witness first-hand the work of Yasmeen Lari, here are some pictures of the Makli Necropolis, one of the largest funerary sites in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, dating back to the 14th Century, a site that has been maintained largely by The Heritage Foundation of Pakistan, founded by Yasmeen Lari and her husband Suhail Zaheer Lari in 1980. Makli is also the village where Lari has built her Zero Carbon Cultural Center.

On this occasion, listen to the latest episode of the podcast Design Emergency, where 2022 AFIELD Fellow Yasmeen Lari questions the colonial charity model, and shares her methodology to prioritise direct assistance and solidarity by providing solutions that empower communities in five stages: food security, shared toilets, water supply, solar power, and flood mitigation.
