Perception on the consequences and flood losses: a study applied in Pinhais, Paraná (Brazil)

Source(s):  Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná

Concerns about the negative impacts, resulting from disasters, faced in urban communities, have gained strength as international and national organizations have recommended carrying out studies to understand how the risks and measures aimed at reducing them are perceived. The objective of the article is to assess the perception of individuals in the face of the consequences and losses of floods. A case study was carried out at the Housing Complex “Moradias Bonilauri” in Pinhais, Paraná, with the application of eight interviews. The main losses identified are related to the loss of material goods, psychological pressures, and the feeling of abandonment by the government. However, even with all the problems listed, residents feel they belong to the place. We conclude that a perception is an important tool in understanding the human-environment relationship, especially for studies on socio-environmental vulnerabilities and flood risk management.
