Q: How can I develop a problem statement for my research proposal around social sustainability and construction practices?

Detailed Question -

My research proposal is on social sustainability and construction practices for institutional buildings in Kyambogo University. An increasing number of students in the university are leaving due to limited learning space (for example, classrooms). Therefore, the institute has embarked on the construction of more buildings of learning. However, with the increasing amount of construction, the environment is being destroyed in order to create space for the buildings to be erected.
