Natural disasters and resource rights: building resilience, rebuilding lives
This paper discusses the role of resource rights in pre-disaster resilience and post-disaster reconstruction. It also raises a number of important questions: Where is the balance between communally-held and privately-held resource rights? How can an understanding of resource rights be integrated into disaster risk reduction plans and disaster relief? And what are the roles and responsibilities of government, the international community and civil society?
