Understanding the Role of Remittances in Reducing Earthquake Risk


With support from the Humanitarian Innovation Fund, a programme managed by ELRHA, the Earthquake risk and remittances research project from Practical Action and the Nepal Risk Reduction Consortium (NRRC) began in February 2014. This research project looked at the relationship between migrant workers, remittances and disaster risk reduction. Most research that has been done in the area of migrants and disasters has focused on post-disaster response. This research aims to determine links between remittances and safer building practices and how organizations can best communicate with migrant workers on risk reduction issues.
