Short Abstract:

This panel aims at discussing the nexus between policy narratives and the practicality of including vulnerable and marginalised groups of people in the global south to enhance people's resilience during human induced disasters.

Long Abstract:

There is an ongoing debate among stakeholders that resilient projects are inclusively implemented together with vulnerable groups of people. However, empirical evidence shows that the vulnerable groups of people are not taken on board during decision making processes of the things that matters to them. According to the Sendai Framework where it emphasised to leave no one behind as everyone matters, hence every individual despite being poor, marginalised and any social group should be included in building inclusive resilient where everyone experiences the impact of anthropocene equally. Therefore, this panel will accept papers from researchers and academicians discussing on the best strategy to ensure that no one is left behind and there is inclusive resilient for all. This panel will accept papers that exclusively discuss the following topics;

1. How are countries in the global south are adopting and addressing the international treaties in their own social settings in order to ensure that inclusive resilience is attained.

2. Any gap in policy implementation and provision of social care for vulnerable groups of people during disasters?

3. How are the rights of the vulnerable groups of people being addressed during human induced disasters?

4. What does inclusive resilience mean to policy makers and its meaning on vulnerable groups of people's social capital, place identity and place dependency in resilience projects?
