Abstract

This paper/presentation reflects on the developing approaches to Disaster Risk Reduction via a case study of the Thai-Burma border region, and concludes that governance is essntial, coupled with both transparancy and cultural awareness and sensitivity. Rights are conceived of as BOTH collective/ communal and individual, and this cannot be traded off against each other, but will create conflicts.
