Vulnerability and Risk: Rebuilding communities after disaster, The Eden Project, Cornwall I UK I 2006
In response to the recent multitude of horrendous natural disasters in countries such as Indonesia and Pakistan, the second ASF-UK Summer School, held in collaboration with both International Development in Extreme Environments (IDee) and the Eden Project, focused on ‘Vulnerability and Risk: Rebuilding Communities after Disaster’. Since natural disasters disproportionately affect communities that are poor or otherwise vulnerable, the Summer School addressed the factors that increase the impact of disasters on these communities; poverty, social exclusion, inappropriate technologies, environmental degradation, marginal land, and inadequate preparedness. In addition, environmental sustainability was considered an integral part of the intervention.
