The Global Geopolitics of Disaster: The Case of the Nepali Floods

Dinesh Paudel, Gregory Reck

Medium and low development countries experienced 64% of all disasters globally, but 92% of the deaths and 97% of the populations severely affected by them.

Nepal contributes almost nothing to the factors producing global climate change. Yet, Nepal is currently the recipient of the consequences of climate change produced primarily by the industrial north.

Very interesting article. Thank you. Our hubris has led us so far down the wrong path, that I fear reconstitution along lines more in tune with the Real will only happen after the slate is wiped clean. Sadly, the process starts with those least deserving.
