Reviews

“The editor of these chapters did a masterful job at weaving these stories into a tapestry that resonates with many of us who have experienced the disasters she describes so well in her introduction.” • Gary Cecchine, Director, RAND Gulf States Policy Institute

Description

Disaster research has been studied from many angles, seldom targeting its implications for vulnerable territories in Africa. Entities most subject to the effects of climate change are often undeveloped and located in disadvantaged regions. Post-disaster communities need to scrutinize the social, political, economic, and cultural structures that stagnate sustainable growth. Acknowledging that low economic development and high climate costs cannot coexist, this collected volume interrogates the challenge for disaster-prone territories to determine strategies for restructuring and redesigning their environment. This book proposes the creation of knowledge economies, whereby empowered communities may produce innovative knowledge translatable across the African diaspora.

Pamela Waldron-Moore is a Professor at Xavier University of Louisiana. Among her research interests are the political economy of development, gendered disparity, and climate justice. She is a recipient of Keynote Speaker awards for research on women and, also, the prestigious Jewel Prestage Mentorship Award from the National Conference of Black Political Scientists.
