Article
Full-text available
Disasters are typically conceptualised as extreme events that disrupt the “normal” functioning of a society. Dominant framings imply temporal boundedness and nature as primarily responsible for environmental disasters. Yet, many critical investigations into the root causes of disasters have taken aim at their eventfulness and naturalness through co...
Article
Full-text available
Anthropogenic climate change is leading to widespread losses around the world. While the focus of research over the last decade has largely been on economic or tangible losses, researchers have begun to shift their focus to understanding the non-economic or intangible dimensions of loss more deeply. Loss of life, biodiversity and social cohesion ar...
Article
Full-text available
Marginalised agrarian societies are suggested to be the most vulnerable to environmental hazards and other perturbations. There are competing explanations for this phenomenon, which include: a lack of development, global environmental change, and the development process itself, or capitalism more specifically. All three causal arguments are compell...
Article
Full-text available
The effects of climate change, whether they be via slow- or rapid-onset events such as extreme events, are inflicting devastating losses and damage on communities around the world, with the most vulnerable affected the most. Although the negative impacts of climate change and the concept of loss and damage are included in international conventions,...
Article
Full-text available
Loss and damage is the "third pillar" of international climate governance alongside mitigation and adaptation. When mitigation and adaptation fail, losses and damages occur. Scholars have been reacting to international political discourse centred around governing actual or potential severe losses and damages from climate change. Large gaps exist in...
Preprint
Australia is both affluent and highly vulnerable to anthropogenic climate change. Despite climate change loss and damage – impacts that cannot or will not be adapted to – science and policy focusing on the Global South, the IPCC recently showed Australia is already experiencing losses and damages. Australian governments and other actors centre buil...
Technical Report
Full-text available
A report on the what, why, how, where and who of non-economic loss and damage, in addition to a section on how people, institutions, and governments can respond. Published by Loss and Damage Collaboration.

Chapter
Full-text available
Pacific Island countries are already experiencing severe impacts from climate change and these will likely increase in the future. In response, a plethora of climate change adaptation projects have been implemented across the region with the aim of assisting those most affected. Yet these projects have largely failed to reduce vulnerability to clim...
Thesis
Full-text available
Disasters are the result of a vulnerable socioecological system interacting with a hazard. Causal – or the root causes of – vulnerability relates to historical and contemporary social, economic, political, cultural, and biophysical processes and factors, and human and institutional actors that increase the susceptibility of socioecological systems....
Article
Full-text available
Emergency food aid is the dominant humanitarian response to food insecurity precipitated by disasters. There is a significant literature on food aid effectiveness (e.g., bolstering food security, targeting, modality selection) in various disaster contexts. Additionally, there are some studies on the potential disincentive effects on agricultural pr...
Article
With development displacing more people and planned relocation being espoused as an adaptation strategy in response to climate change, research that explores the experiences of those who have been resettled is needed. The Maldives has a history of resettlement based on an ongoing policy of consolidation of dispersed populations to ensure access to...
Article
The exposure of vulnerable food systems to hazards often leads to outcomes such as food insecurity. In order to prevent such food insecurity, it is critical to understand the causal factors-or root causes-of vulnerability, particularly in a world of increasing risk. As such, this paper develops and implements a food system causal disaster vulnerabi...
Article
Full-text available
https://www.unisdr.org/we/inform/publications/66187 Vanuatu is one of the most hazard prone nations in the world and frequently tops the World Risk Report as the nation with the highest overall disaster risk. The devastation wrought by category 5 cyclone Pam (2015), the El Niño drought (2015/16), and volcanic eruptions in Ambae (2018), are but a f...
Preprint
Full-text available
This is a final version of a contributing paper for the UNISDR Global Assessment Report 2019. While it should have been uploaded to the website by now, it hasn't been, so this is the pre-print final version.It has been peer reviewed. Reference: Jackson, G., B. Witt, and K.E. McNamara. 2019. “Conducive and Hindering Factors for Effective Disaster...
Article
Full-text available
Climate change researchers argue that a residual domain exists beyond the limits of adaptation to prevent deleterious climate change impacts: this has been labeled as “loss and damage.” Over the last 8 years, there has been significant growth in loss and damage scholarship thus making it imperative to take stock of what we know already and directio...
Article
Full-text available
The societal costs of disasters around the world are continuing to increase and Pacific Island countries are considered some of the most vulnerable. This is primarily due to a combination of high hazard exposure coupled with a range of social, economic, physical, and political vulnerabilities. This article contributes to the growing body of work th...
