I’m halfway through a report on disaster management and peacebuilding by Michael Renner and my good friend Zoe Chafe at the Worldwatch Institute.
The frequency of disasters is likely to increase due to a number of factors, chiefly among them climate change. The report’s most important contribution is its insight into how interdisciplinary approaches to disaster can actually make them peacebuilding opportunities. Chafe and Renner go into depth on a few case studies to make their point.
This should make some waves.
