Routledge studies in development, displacement and resettlement.
"This book includes ten chapters of highly original and innovative research on the reality and dynamics of climate displacement in seven of the countries which are most seriously affected, or which will be in the future. The book includes both general analytical chapters as well as country-specific chapters on Bangladesh, Kiribati, the Maldives, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. All country chapters are written by nationals of those countries, lending a first-hand account of how these frontline nations are grappling with the human consequences of climate displacement"-- Provided by publisher.
