In 2000, Burkina Faso farmer Seri Youlou and Frenchman Thomas Granier started the Nubian Vault Association, which is also known by its French name Association La Voûte Nubienne (AVN). They resurrected what they call the Nubian Vault technique, or the process of constructing sturdy vaulted roofs with mud bricks similar to processes employed centuries ago in ancient Egypt. Not only has the technique helped put a roof over families' heads and driven economic development, it's benefited the environment as well. According to AVN, since September 2015 Nubian Vault homes have saved around 55,000 tons of carbon dioxide from going into the atmosphere.
