Abstract

Rapid urbanization and frequent natural disasters have substantially increased the number of urban households – especially poor households – that have to be relocated away from their homes and communities (Satiroglu and Choi, 2015). Urbanization in developing countries is associated with many challenges, among them poverty and viral growth of informal settlements, many of which are often exposed to various natural hazards (Manirakiza, 2014). Resettlement is one option for reducing the risk of natural disasters that is being adopted both before and after the occurrence of a disaster (Correa et al., 2011). Governments and international agencies increasingly consider resettlement of vulnerable urban communities as a risk reduction strategy (Ibrahim et al., 2015). Disaster–risk mitigation is an indispensable instrument for protecting people’s lives and assets, as well as expanding national and local economies. Poorly executed resettlement may, however, induce loss of livelihood and increase the vulnerability and impoverishment of the displaced population.
