In Brief

This In Brief discusses how recent labour mobility policies can and have enabled contributions for immediate and mid- to long-term recoveries from natural disasters. We draw on three main examples of responses. First, we focus on ways in which remittances from labour mobility can benefit recovery efforts. Next, we explore how employers and host communities respond to disasters in the region. Finally, policy suggestions and responses at a government level will be outlined.
