Pour une approche territoriale de la culture du risque : application au risque inondation dans le bassin français de la Meuse

Abstract : The increasing number of floods in the catchment basin of the French Meuse, the area studied in this thesis, questions the territories’ stakeholders in their abilities to anticipate, prepare for and prevent those floods. With this in mind, this thesis highlights methods for reducing the impact of flood risks via a three directional approach: information, awareness and education. It analyses how to optimize the spread of a risk culture among water management organisations, elected representative, experts and companies, but also among citizens. They are primarily concerned both by the prevention of risks which directly affect them and by urban planning. This research’s objective is to define this risk culture and to study how its development reduces the vulnerability of territories and populations to flood risks. In the light of the diagnosis made, a new configuration of territorial policies can be considered. It would rely on a dynamic and evolving urban project, which would be based on territorial vulnerabilities and work in tandem with a society proactive in dealing with flood risks. This would mean an adaptive response intended to increase territorial resilience to flooding and responding to the priorities identified by a reasoned development.
