Percepción social en la gestión del riesgo de inundación en un área mediterránea (Costa Brava, España)

This research aims to understand the perception of civil society both organized and unorganized, regarding the problem of floods and their management. This is based on a case study of the following municipalities; Calonge, Torroella de Montgrí and Tossa de Mar. This is achieved through a mixed methodology that combines qualitative and quantitative aspects and applies three complementary techniques of data collection: a) surveys of residents in flood-prone areas; b) interviews with mayors and technical environments within each of the respective municipalities of the study, and c) Focus Groups sessions with civil society representatives previously defined. The main results show that the flood experience is a determinant to know social perception of flood risk and structural measures have great support by local authorities and residents of areas prone to flooding. However, organized civil society prefers to enhance non-structural measures for the protection and management of flood risk. ​
