Mobilities Facing Hydrometeorological Extreme Events 2

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Lutoff Celine, Durand Severine

With climate change, fast floods are multiplying and intensifying in various regions of the world and especially in the Mediterranean. Motorists are particularly vulnerable to these violent and difficult to predict events. Thus, half of the flood victims concern people surprised by their daily mobility, going to work or going to pick up their children at school. There is therefore a challenge to better understand how population movements are exposed to these phenomena. The aim of this book is to first provide a summary of the interdisciplinary work done over the past ten years on the exposure of daily mobility. This can not be done without taking into consideration how these mobilities have evolved with the reorganization of spaces over long time. Residential mobility, the way in which the occupation of the flood zones evolves with time and the resulting immobile exposure are thus also at the heart of this work. In the face of recrudescence and the intensification of fast floods, we seek to understand how the interaction of hydro-meteorological, social and development dynamics combine to bring about an improvement or, on the contrary, a worsening of both mobile and immobile exposure. One of our hypotheses is that each event constitutes a more or less significant trigger of adaptation actions at different scales. We rely on different fields and studies conducted in the South East of France and more broadly on the Mediterranean basin to answer these questions and verify these hypotheses. Volume 2: Towards mobility adaptation cycles in the face of extreme hydro-meteorological events

  • Provides a comprehensive understanding of residential and daily mobilities in extreme hydrometeorological situations
  • Updates on mobility adaptation cycles in the face of extreme hydro-meteorological events

Part 1: Socio-hydrometeorological rhythms 1. Rhythmicity of adaptation to floods: physical cursors for the analysis of the action 2. Institutional Memory of Hazard 3. Pace of political decisions in the face of fast floods at the local level 4. Rapid flooding, revealing specific interactions between residential and daily mobility?

Part 2: High impact event: emergence and irreversibility 5. Introduction: notions of emergence and irreversibility 6. High impact events, is a socio-hydrometeorological characterization possible? 7. Misfortune groups: life cycle and mass rise 8. High and low frequency exposure 9. Conclusion: contributions on the concepts of emergence and irreversibility

Céline Lutoff is Senior Lecturer at Grenoble Alpes University, France, at the laboratory of social sciences at Grenoble (PACTE). She piloted the ANR MobiClimEx project and currently co-manages a platform dedicated to a science-society interface concerning regional climate change, Ouranos-AuRA.
Séverine Durand, an environmental sociologist, defended a thesis in 2014 at Aix-Marseille University, France, on living practices in flood zones. During her four years working towards her postdoctoral thesis, she contributed to the MobiClimEx project, proposing a socio-anthropologic approach to mobility facing flash floods.
