Perception du risque et évaluation économique de l'exposition aux inondations. Étude de deux territoires aux contextes hydrologiques différents

Abstract : Objectives of this project are at different levels. First, it aims at strengthen and links two research actions conducted in parallel so far. The first action is an interdisciplinary study of risk perception, conducted on Vilaine catchment, second one is an economic valuation of territory exposure to flood, conducted in Orb catchment. The link expected between the two research actions consists in applying each action (perception and valuation) in both catchment. We expect that contrasted hydrological contexts and spatial approach underlying each action is an opportunity to study relations between a territory exposure and the perception inhabitants or actors have of flood risk. The choice of two catchments with contrasted characteristics is perceived as a necessary condition for generalization of results. Second, we expect results for each research actions. For the perception study, we aim at testing and strengthening survey techniques for collecting opinions from different group of social actors. Methodology used will used both opened and closed surveys, with an effort of interdisciplinary (economic, geomatics, sociology and economics). Aims of the surveys are to identify main parameters that contribute to the construction of flood perception. For the economic valuation of territory exposure study, we aim at propose a modelling of territory vulnerability (relation between of submersion hazard and induced consequences). The question of the scale of study will be investigated, depending on stakes studied. A consequent part of the study will concern the study of uncertainty of the modelling proposed, which will be allowed by an interdisciplinary approach (economics, geography, geomatics, hydrology and hydraulics). We expect to find an articulation between both approaches: perception and economic valuation. Consolidation of knowledge on both study areas is also en expected outcome.
