Source(s):  Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery, the (GFDRR)

This publication presents the case studies of Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Guatemala to consider resettlement as part of a preventive measure, due to rapid and unplanned urbanization that have compounded vulnerabilities to natural disasters.

Chapter I analyzes global natural disaster trends and their impacts. Statistics on the occurrence of disasters, and especially their increasing impact in terms of loss of life and livelihoods, and overall economic losses, underscore the growing importance of disaster risk reduction frameworks at global and regional levels.

Chapter II analyzes resettlement as a risk reduction measure and describes the objectives and methodology of the cases studied.
