Disaster risk governance for Pacific island communities

Source(s):  The Asia-Pacific Journal: Japan Focus (APJ)

The Asia-Pacific Journal, Issue 48, Vol 13, No. 1, December 14, 2015:

This article examines disaster risk governance for island case studies, focusing on Pacific Small Island Developing States (SIDS). SIDS examples are used to examine two main areas in line with this special issue’s themes: power and knowledge in disaster risk governance. The interactions between those themes are explored for three SIDS governance scales: regional, national, and sub-national. Linking the theoretical discussion with empirical examples demonstrates how bypassing government can be suitable for disaster risk governance.
