Publication Overview

Natural Disasters and Resource Rights - Building resilience, rebuilding lives

Natural disasters damage and destroy the land, sea and forest resources vital to peoples' livelihoods. Where resource rights are clearly defined, equitable and verifiable, poor and marginalized communities are better equipped to survive disasters and recover after them. Oli Brown, Alec Crawford and Anne Hammill discuss the role of resource rights in pre-disaster resilience and post-disaster reconstruction.
