Displaced Persons' Camp Siting and Conflict Prediction in the Sahel
MetadataShow full item record
Within the biogeographic region of the Sahel, approximately 4.9 million people are forcibly displaced as a result of environmental degradation, poverty and insecurity associated with terrorism and criminal organizations. As these forces of displacement proliferate, there are subsequent emerging vulnerable areas throughout this biogeographic zone. Our mission is to better prepare settlements for the arrival of displaced persons by identifying likely areas of displacement, and determine preferred site locations for the settlement of displaced populations.
