Title: Ecohealth and Displacement: A Case Study of Resettlement and Return in Ethiopia
Author: Erlichman, Sarah Elizabeth
Abstract: This Major Paper is based on field research conducted in the northern highlands of Ethiopia investigating the situation of farmers returned from resettlement in southwest Ethiopia under a government program that resettled 800,000 people in the late 1970s and mid-1980s in an attempt to counter environmental threats to food security. The returnees fled ill-health and conflict with local people in resettlement areas and returned to their places of origin. The paper explores the impact of displacement on a broadly defined concept of "ecohealth" in terms of environmental change over three historical periods: pre-resettlement, resettlement, and return.
