Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


We observe signs of social differentiation, where poor households end up serving as causal labour for the richer families on their acacia plantations. In addition, the poor can be rendered more vulnerable after becoming labourers, because they may not longer have an alternative source of income, yet they still face the risk of increasing frequency of typhoon exposure.
