Resilience imperative : uncertainty, risks and disasters by Magali Reghezza-Zitt( )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""We have to adapt to the impacts that, unfortunately, we can no longer avoid", said President Obama at the UN Climate Summit in September 2014. Adaptation and resilience are now a must in both academic research and international bodies. A fashionable concept, resilience's polysemy sparks many debates on its uses and operational relevance. This book bridges the increasing divide between academic research and the latest planning innovations, offering practical and conceptual insights for practitioners, researchers and students. Magali Reghezza-Zitt and Samuel Rufat present a cross-disciplinary, state-of-the-art debate and critical analysis of the social, spatial, practical and political implications of resilience"--OCLC

Métropoles en débat (dé)constructions de la ville compétitive : [colloque, 19-21 janvier 2012 by à quel prix?" (Conference) "Ville compétitive( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La compétitivité, un horizon incontournable de la ville? Aucune ville n'y est en tout cas insensible, ni les favorites des classements internationaux, ni celles ne pouvant prétendre qu'à une place régionale, ni même les autres, reléguées de la hiérarchie mondiale mais impatientes de faire bonne figure. Cet ouvrage a précisément pour objectif d'interroger une telle unanimité. Que signifie au juste ce terme de " compétitivité " dont toutes les villes usent voire abusent? Comment se fait-il que les autorités des villes les plus pauvres de la planète, pourtant incapables de concourir, se laissent prendre elles-mêmes à ce discours? Quelle place accorder à un " impératif " de compétitivité dans le fonctionnement des villes et particulièrement des métropoles, en regard des autres enjeux urbains, notamment de justice sociale et de justice spatiale? Qui dit la ville compétitive, qui la construit idéologiquement et matériellement? Cet ouvrage tient toute sa place dans les débats contemporains sur l'urbain

Social vulnerability to floods : review of case studies and implications for measurement by Samuel Rufat( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Partial summary ... this paper profiles the leading drivers of social vulnerability to floods. The results identify demographic characteristics, socioeconomic status, and health as the leading empirical drivers of social vulnerability to damaging flood events. However, risk perception and coping capacity also featured prominently in the case studies, yet these factors tend to be poorly reflected in many social vulnerability indicators. The influence of social vulnerability drivers varied considerably by disaster stage and national setting, highlighting the importance of context in understanding social vulnerability precursors, processes, and outcomes
