SubjectClimate Change Adaptation; Disaster Risk Reduction; Relocation; Social Capital; Sustainable Development
This integrative literature review explores the relationship between social capital and planned relocation as a disaster risk reduction measure. This is done by using qualitative data analysis methods to examine literature on relocation through the lens of an existing framework for the measurement of social capital, which can be understood as human relationships and their associated benefits. Following this, implicative logic is used to form a series of recommendations for preserving or increasing social capital in the context of relocation. Finally, a framework for applying the findings from this research in a real-world context is developed and proposed.
