February 2020
Carolien Jacobs and Bernardo Almeida (Van Vollenhoven Institute, University of Leiden)

Looks at the dynamics of environmental displacement, land rights and conflict in the aftermath of the Cyclone Idai in Mozambique in March 2019, and at the role of international and national legal frameworks in addressing land-related problems caused by this displacement. Land rights issues such as the need to displace people from high-risk areas bring another layer of problems to climate change adaptation.
