Lived experiences of people during a time of disaster and crisis

Cliffordene Norton, Tanja Hendriks Academisch 2020-03-02

"The 2015 floods in Malawi really made me become interested in the role of disaster-affected states during disaster response, and especially in what was going on in these camps, how people were organising themselves, how they allocated the assistance that was given and what they did when no or not enough help arrived."
