Social strategies for prevention and adaptation / Estrategias sociales de prevención y adaptación

Source(s):  Centro de Investigaciones y Estudios Superiores en Antropología Social (CIESAS)

This document contains 13 case studies from Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America and its objective is to recuperate ancestral and vernacular knowledge culturally developed and associated with risk prevention in face of recurrent hydro-meteorological hazards, like floods.

Societies have imagined, created, constructed, rejected and returned to imagine, create and construct diverse strategies that allow them to prevent the effects related to the imminent presence of a natural hazard. These processes are associated and are the result of the conditions in which a certain society develops, that is to say, they are product of a certain culture.
