Flood risk communication: a fundamental tool for disaster risk management

Source(s):  Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná

Communicating the risk of flooding to stakeholders, especially the vulnerable, is one of the main challenges that public management and other actors have in the search for the construction of resilient cities and societies, and regional development. Based on this, the present work aims to present the status quo and trends and patterns in the flood risk communication research over time. For this, bibliometric analysis was used as a research technique, aiming to expand and update the framework of references that compose the theme. The main results are the identification of 59 articles in 31 different journals, which were published mainly from 2007. The largest share of the 189 authors identified came from European and North American countries, influencing the establishment of collaborative networks. There is a very low or even absence of authors from other continents, especially developing countries in Africa and Latin America, where the risk of disasters has had major impacts, especially in the most vulnerable groups. Although it is an emerging and still little explored theme, the work carried out so far has presented extraordinarily enlightening results about the management and effects of risk communication in society.
