Réflexions autour de la vulnérabilité métropolitaine : la métropole parisienne face au risque de crue centennale.

Abstract : The Paris metropolitan area is threatened by floods. This hazard is regarded as
the main natural risk for the city. Starting from a possible scenario of the disaster
(designed by the authorities) and interviews with stakeholders, this study aims at
finding the specific vulnerability of a global city. By looking at both the potential
damage and the coping capacity of the society, we develop a new framework to
undestand metropolitan vulnerability. We stress out the impact of metropolitan
spatial dynamics on risk. We adopt a territorial point of view in order to understand
how this specific risk is currently managed in the Paris metropolitan area, and how
this management could be improved. To conclude, this study underlines the spatial
dimension of vulnerability, using "geographical space" and "territory" as key
concepts.
