Vulnérabilité et réduction des risques liés à l'eau dans les quartiers informels de Jakarta, Indonésie. Réponses sociales, institutionnelles et non institutionnelles.

Abstract : The Jakarta metropolitan area is highly prone to hazards related to water, between the excess of water during floods, the lack of drinking water and pollution. All these factors induce serious health problems. If all social groups are victims of disasters related to water, poor communities from slum areas are particularly vulnerable, especially because of limited means of protection. They tend to adopt hazardous behaviors when they are faced to these threats; they put themselves at risk and often make things worse because of inappropriate practices. Through a geo-ethnographical and social approach, this study first aims at tracking the root causes and underpinning factors of vulnerability, by testing assumptions from two conceptual frameworks of research about risk. The results emphasize the everyday dimension of these disasters which are embedded within a long marginalization process toward resources. Secondly, field investigation and interviews with institutional stakeholders of risk management and urban development allow us to highlight structural management problems replaced within an international framework, inadequate risk reduction strategies, then to understand underlying political issues. Finally, based on a participatory analysis of community-based projects from non institutional stakeholders, we will discuss about the role played by the different stakeholders from the local to the international scale, in order to establish efficient strategies of disaster risk reduction for vulnerable communities.
