Identifying Emerging Issues in Disaster Risk Reduction, Migration, Climate Change and Sustainable
about this item
The proposed book is a timely contribution to researchers, students, scholars or policy makers in the fields of environment, human geography, development and disaster studies toward a more comprehensive grasp of contemporary development issues. Contributions come from a number of well-known authors from both the North and the South providing theoretical discussions as well as field observations from practitioners and scientists regarding climate change adaptation, migration and disaster risk reduction and sustainable development linkages from around the world. One of the main barriers to furthering our understanding about the inter-linkages between these forces of development (or lack thereof) is the silo approach with which we address such issues. In spite of political talk about how to bridge gaps between climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction, institutional architectures and frameworks maintain the divisions. Several important policy frameworks are currently being renegotiated: the 2015 United Nations Framework on Climate Change Convention Conference of Parties, the post- 2015 Hyogo Framework for Action and the Sustainable Development Goals alongside continuous nationalistic debates about curbs on population mobility across borders. This book would be a timely contribution to this crucial period of negotiation and policy debate.
