As part of the ‘Reducing relocation risk in Urban Areas’ project which examines the various social and economic implications of climate-risk related resettlement and relocation policies in cities across three geographies (India, Uganda, and Peru, Colombia and Mexico in Latin America), the three regional teams put the key ideas that emerged from the cross-regional study into this policy brief. It attempts to outline the problem statement and offers a suggestive policy framework for reducing relocation risk in urban areas.
