Having spent some time in Pakistan and seeing the issues with domestic construction. I have come to the conclusion that ignoring traditional construction techniques is a bad practice.
In the older days we used to make homes with mud bricks straw etc. Since the introduction of concrete and steel we have completely ignored this method and have subsequently I herited sideffects like extremely hot rooms in the summer and very cold rooms in the winter.
I think steel concrete should be used in conjunction with earth and straw. Old open designs with wind towers to circulate air and fountains in the courtyard with misting effects.
The concrete walls should be covered in mud and straw mixture and this will provide a natural colling and insulating effect.
I could go on like green energy incorporation etc but yiu get the picture.

Yes, Exporting PVC and value-added materials should be encouraged.
On other hand, Use of PVC material in construction should be preferred, it is lifetime guaranty and cheap in long term. Cupper and other material are now expensive.
