Abstract

The city of Goma is affected by multiple hazards: volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and the danger of a methane gas explosion in lake Kivu. At the same time, recent developments of the city and its rapid growth can only be explained in the context of war and political destabilization in the region. The article discusses how these factors interact and force people to live in a extremely risky environment. - (IfL)
