Risque d'inondation et dynamiques territoriales des espaces de renouvellement urbain : les cas de Seine-Amont et de l'Est londonien

Abstract : The aim of this PhD is to analyse the obstacles facing flood risk management as it is integrated into spatial planning policies. Recently, the French and British governments have implemented several policies in order to ensure that flood risk is taken into account at all the stages of the planning process, but there are still misunderstandings and conflicts between national aims and local interests. We focus on urban regeneration, both in Seine-Amont and East London, as these two areas are the focus of new urban projects where stakeholders thus have the opportunity to take flood hazard into account from the beginning. But local stakeholders face difficulty in balancing, on the one hand, their development needs with, on the other, the imperative to control development in flood risk areas. They do not ignore the risk but it is not a priority and floods are not considered as part of place. As a result, regeneration projects significantly increase the vulnerability of both areas.
Since urban regeneration areas are often flagship projects in the building of sustainable cities, is it not possible to develop floodplains in a sustainable way ? We can not prevent floods completely but we can try to set up multilevel sustainable planning systems which integrate floods. Our purpose is to focus on planning tools and governance mechanisms that exist in both countries in order to see how they could be improved. More generally, we aim to show that an integrative approach to the strategic planning of floodplains could be a potentially advantageous way to transform vulnerable places into resilient ones.
