Conflicts and Natural Disasters
The Palgrave Encyclopedia of Peace and Conflict Studies
Scholarly, policy, and practitioner efforts to understand the nexus between conflicts and natural disasters and to seek integrated ways to address them abound. As both conflicts and natural disasters have been increasing in intensity and frequency worldwide, awareness has grown about the devastating and unsustainable human and financial costs. Increasing inequalities between and within countries exacerbate these consequences for those who can least afford them. This entry examines the various manifestations of the relationship between conflict and disaster, and the ways in which they intersect and interact.
