Abstract

Grounded on a disaster-based conceptualization of adaptive capacity, this paper proffers a dynamic perspective which incorporates both the capital assets and institutional governance dimensions of adaptive capacity into disaster management process, and highlights its migration implications. In doing this, the authors link livelihood model of migration with adaptive capacity model, and propose a consolidative model which captures improved adaptive capacity of destinations for disaster migrants. In a context in which literature on adaptive capacity of destinations and disaster migrants appears to be disconnected, this consolidative model integrates disaster-induced migration factors with institutional processes and asset elements of adaptive capacity. Recognising the importance of the disaster space in analyses of adaptive capacity, the proposed consolidative model offers novel research perspectives that emphasise the relevance of adopting an integrated adaptive capacity approach to concerns of disaster migrants’ management.
