    Abstract:

    Critical infrastructure systems are essential in the wellbeing and security of the modern society. They are becoming more ubiquitous and large-scale, and their interdependencies have become more and more complex leading to their uncertain behaviors in the aftermath of disruptive events. The prolonged disruptions in public utility services create several negative impacts on the individuals as well as the communities and society as a whole. The paper seeks to develop an integrated economic inpu…

    Abstract:

    From climate change to toxic pollution and the interactive effects of multiple pollution streams, human health is under siege. Human-produced environmental risks to health and wellbeing are massive and contributing to patterns of global morbidity, mortality, economic inequality, displacement, and insecurity. The implications of human-produced environmental harms to global health are complex just as are their causes. The concept of environmental violence (EV) offers a potentially robust frame …

    Abstract:

    Accumulating evidence indicates that global sea levels have been rising at an accelerating rate. This trend, linked with global warming, poses a great risk to the communities living in the low elevation coastal areas. This study aims to understand public preferences and produce estimates of economic value for sea level rise adaptation projects in Florida. Specifically, a series of choice experiments embedded in a household survey of Florida’s selected communities were used to: 1) examine the …

    Abstract:

    This article examines a case study from war-torn Sierra Leone in 1994, in which a rumor galvanized violent public action and only dissipated when a seemingly unrelated issue was resolved. I argue that the circulation of rumors can foment the emergence of political narratives focused on topics that are otherwise taboo, and creates the space to act on them without overtly disturbing the status quo. I analyze the content of interview material with residents of the town of Makeni and eight months…
