Displaced by climate and disaster-induced relocations: Experiences of cascading displacement in Fiji and the Philippines.

Disasters 2021 Jan 21. Epub 2021 Jan 21.

Research Coordinator, UNICEF Mozambique, Maputo, Mozambique.

Disasters and climate-related risks displace millions of people each year. Planned relocation is one strategy used to address displacement and is increasingly being analyzed for the potential opportunities and challenges it creates for relocated people. However, little attention has been paid to the secondary impacts of planned relocations, and how they influence the risk, vulnerability and well-being of other groups, particularly people who live on the land that is selected for relocation sites, or in neighboring areas.

Evacuation after a nuclear accident: Critical reviews of past nuclear accidents and proposal for future planning.

Environ Int 2021 03 13;148:106379. Epub 2021 Jan 13.

Instituto de Salud Global de Barcelona, 08003 Barcelona, Spain.

Standards and guidelines for preparedness and response in the case of a nuclear accident cover radiation protection, health management and communication with affected populations. Decision makers use these recommendations to decide on measures that protect people residing around a nuclear power plant that suffers an accident from radiation exposure; for example, sheltering, evacuation and relocation. While technological and radiological criteria exist for these protective measures, studies on past radiological and nuclear emergencies have shown that evacuation and relocation result in serious health effects; this needs to be considered in accident preparedness and responses in the future.

The health impacts of climate-related migration.

BMC Med 2017 12 11;16(1). Epub 2017 Dec 11.

The School of Geography, The University of Melbourne, Parkville, VIC, 3010, Australia.

Background: Changes in climate, in conjunction with other drivers of mobility, shape human migration. While there is an increasing focus on the adaptive potential of migration, the health impacts of climate-related migration, including planned relocation and forced displacement, have not been thoroughly examined. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change stated that migration is currently, and will increasingly be, influenced by environmental degradation and climate change, and that it needs to be addressed in a focused and coordinated manner.

Survey of Beaver-related Restoration Practices in Rangeland Streams of the Western USA.

Environ Manage 2018 01 22;61(1):58-68. Epub 2017 Nov 22.

College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR, 97331, USA.

Poor condition of many streams and concerns about future droughts in the arid and semi-arid western USA have motivated novel restoration strategies aimed at accelerating recovery and increasing water resources. Translocation of beavers into formerly occupied habitats, restoration activities encouraging beaver recolonization, and instream structures mimicking the effects of beaver dams are restoration alternatives that have recently gained popularity because of their potential socioeconomic and ecological benefits. However, beaver dams and dam-like structures also harbor a history of social conflict. Read More

Effect of Interhospital ICU Relocation on Patient Physiology and Clinical Outcomes.

J Intensive Care Med 2019 Nov-Dec;34(11-12):1010-1016. Epub 2017 Aug 18.

Department of Medicine, Section of Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine and Allergy/Immunology, Louisiana State University School of Medicine, New Orleans, LA, USA.

Relocation of large numbers of critically ill patients between hospitals is sometimes necessary and the risks associated with relocation may be high. In the setting of adherence to an interhospital intensive care unit (ICU) relocation protocol, we aimed to determine whether the interhospital relocation of all ICU patients in a single day is associated with changes in vital signs, device removal, and worse clinical outcomes. We conducted a prospective, observational, cohort study of all critically ill adults admitted to a tertiary medical center's ICUs on the day of a planned hospital relocation and exposed to interhospital ICU relocation compared with unexposed critically ill adults.
