Byggteknik, samhällsuppbyggnad och politiskt gensvar på Jamaica – Ett orkandrabbat land (Swedish)
The Jamaican hurricane history goes back a long time. The country has an average ratio of getting hit or brushed every 3.84 years and it is estimated to be hit directly every 9.47 years.
This underscores the relevance of this paper since it seeks to investigate the construction, social structure and policy response of Jamaica.
The impressions of the author combined with the interviews and literature study resulted in the conclusion of the constructions and social structure not being the main issue, but the policy response.
