    Project Details

    Description

    This project develops an analytical model to assess the resilience of property systems, in circumstances of environmental stress, through research on local relocations after oceanic inundation in the Asia-Pacific. The primary case-studies are Indonesia (tsunami disaster) and Solomon Islands (rising sea levels). The project fills a gap in responses to natural disasters and climate change in the Asia-Pacific. While there is emerging international law work on climate change refugees, there is relatively little scholarship on sustainable local relocation for displaced peoples, even though initial adaptive responses to disasters and climate change involve small-scale rather than transnational population movements.
