After a disaster, land and property rights are often overlooked in response and rebuilding efforts. The lack of clear rights often leads to conflict, delay, and higher costs. But we can address these problems before a disaster strikes. We can:
- Create projects that strengthen the capacity of land administration institutions and staff;
- Build resilience by identifying safe and secure spaces for reconstruction;
- Include communities in documenting land rights and creating solutions for shelter; and
- Recognize the rights of vulnerable communities living in informal housing.
Learn how in a breakfast panel discussion. Experts will share their experiences in Sri Lanka, Haiti, and Indonesia.
- Dr. Cynthia Caron, Assistant Professor of International Development and Social Change at Clark University
