  • Villagers and U.S. Army soldiers work together to construct an eco-dome in Karatbi San, Djibouti, Nov. 30.

Civil Affairs Team 4902, 490th Civil Affairs Battalion, assigned to Combined Joint Task Force - Horn of Africa, visited the village Nov. 29 through Dec. 2, to help the villagers build the eco-dome and share skill sets with them so they can continue construction on the dome until the team returns next month.

  • U.S. Army soldiers with the  Civil Affairs Team 4902 use a light armored tactical vehicle to transport dirt to an eco-dome construction site in Karatbi San, Djibouti, Nov. 29. The eco-dome being built in Karatbi San is a form of durable housing made of earth, barbed wire, sand bags and cement.
  • This eco-dome was built at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, by a civil affairs team a few years ago to see if these buildings are feasible to support communities in the Combined Joint Task Force - Horn of Africa area of responsibility. The eco-dome in Karatbi San, Djibouti, is the first dome CJTF-HOA began building outside Camp Lemonnier to be used by Djiboutians. Though the eco-dome at Karatbi San, Djibouti, is still under construction, upon completion it will stand 21 feet high with a 21-foot diameter main dome and a 15-foot diameter adjoining dome, making it significantly larger than the dome on the camp.
