Poor Preparedness Responsible For Human Displacement Following Disasters, Report Says

Humanosphere: Disasters didn’t have to displace 19.3 million people in 2014
Humanosphere reporter Tom Murphy discusses a new report from the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) of the Norwegian Refugee Council, which examines the causes of natural disasters and displacement from the effects of disasters. “…IDMC says it is humans who shoulder the responsibility,” Murphy writes, noting early warning systems, better constructed buildings, improved infrastructures, and similar improvements can bolster communities’ resilience (7/28).
