The challenge of moving from acknowledgement to action: A review of vulnerability to environmental stresses and natural hazards in PRSPs
Specifically, it aims to:
- evaluate the effectiveness of PRSPs in integrating vulnerability analysis into strategies to address key development concerns;
- identify the extent to which PRSPs consider the dynamics and interactions of environmental stresses that can impact upon the lives of poor people;and
- whilst focusing on environmental stresses (including natural hazards) draw on SEI research on the interactions of multiple stressors in creating vulnerability as well as on the synthesis of lessons from other vulnerability reduction activities.
