Der gesellschaftliche Umgang mit zunehmender Verwundbarkeit : Eine Analyse der sozialen Bedingungen für vulnerabilitätsorientierte räumliche Planung in den Küstenzonen von Bangladesch by Bishawjit Mallick( )

2 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Zunahme von auf Naturereignisse folgende Katastrophen in Küstenregionen führt zu zusätzlichen Risiken. Dies zeigt die Notwendigkeit einer angepassten und anpassungsfähigen Entwicklung und Planung in Küstengebieten und wirft die Frage auf, wie die Gesellschaft in den betroffenen Ländern - meist Entwicklungsländern - auf natürliche Gefahren reagieren kann, insbesondere in den Bereichen Prävention und Bewältigung. Welche der identifizierten Anpassungsmaßnahmen werden gesellschaftlich akzeptiert und was sind kritische Schwächen der vorhandenen räumlichen Planungsprozesse? Wie können diese gelöst werden? Das südwestliche Küstengebiet von Bangladesch ist eine der am stärksten durch derartige Ereignisse betroffenen Regionen der Erde. Die vorliegende Studie gibt mit Hilfe einer empirischen Erhebung dieses Gebiets auf die oben genannten Fragen Antworten
Environmental change, adaptation and migration : bringing in the region( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, migration and mobility have increasingly been promoted as one possible adaptive strategy within climate change scenarios and environmental change, and even constituting a solution for locally problematic situations. This edited collection presents empirical and theoretical insights into the current debate on environmental change, adaptation, and migration by analysing these issues from a regional perspective. Individual chapters focus on countries in the global South which are already subject to ongoing environmental degradation: Sudan, Mexico, the Philippines, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Ghana. People living in these countries are likely to suffer from growing ecological inequalities. The contributors call for a greater involvement of the local population in empirical studies, for the acknowledgment of their agency, and for a systematic link between development studies and migration studies. The book attempts to overcome the strongly policy-driven discourse encouraging the research community to focus on the regional setting."--Pub. desc

Cyclone shelters and their locational suitability: an empirical analysis from coastal Bangladesh( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Bangladesh is one of the poorest and the most disaster-prone countries in Asia; it is important, therefore, to know how its disaster reduction strategies are organised and planned. Cyclone shelters comprise a widely acceptable form of infrastructural support for disaster management in Bangladesh. This paper attempts to analyse empirically their use during cyclones in a sample study area along the southwest coastal belt of the country. It shows how the location of a cyclone shelter can determine the social power structure in coastal Bangladesh. The results reveal that the establishment of cyclone shelters in the studied communities is determined by neither a right-based nor a demand-based planning approach; rather, their creation is dependent on the socio-political affluence of local-level decision-makers. The paper goes on to demonstrate that socially vulnerable households (defined, for example, by income or housing conditions) are afforded disproportionately less access to cyclone shelters as compared to less socially vulnerable households
