Wall design in renovation - with moisture issues #green

Sorry in advance for the long question. it seems important to establish the full context because i've been unable to match my circumstances to the thousands of articles i've read here and other places. Zone 5a/6a border (Hudson valley, ny) 1959 slab on grade, standard 2x4 framing single story house. It's cut deeply into the hill, and the entire back of the house is 2 feet away from a 3-5 ft high retaining wall. ugh. The house is environmentally almost a walk in basement. high humidity levels, and, no surprise, mold. solving the moisture will hopefully help the mold issues. An important consideration: this house is occupied by a tenant. i dont see an airtight drywall approach as being viable, besides the expense and finicky detailing, when its all done and then a tenant comes in and pokes holes in the walls hanging pictures or whatever...oh oh oh. this isn't luxury housing ...
