Understanding Resilient Urban Futures: A Systemic Modelling Approach

Received: 20 May 2013 / Revised: 13 July 2013 / Accepted: 15 July 2013 / Published: 23 July 2013 The resilience of cities in response to natural disasters and long-term climate change has emerged as a focus of academic and policy attention. In particular, how to understand the interconnectedness of urban and natural systems is a key issue.

La résurgence/convergence du triptyque « catastrophe-résilience-adaptation » pour (re)penser la « fabrique urbaine » face aux risques climatiques

Politiques et pratiques de la résilience. 1Ce dossier porte sur un concept qui suscite un intérêt croissant en géographie depuis quelques années : la résilience.

Politiques et pratiques de la résilience

Le concept n’est pas à proprement parler nouveau car de nombreuses disciplines y ont recours à l’image de l’écologie (Holling l’utilise dès 1973 pour décrire des systèmes évolutifs, qui absorbent les chocs, par opposition à des systèmes stables), des sciences physiques (où il désigne l’élasticité, la plasticité des matériaux soumis à des chocs), ou encore de la psychologie (qui l’a popularisé en France, notamment, suite aux travaux de B. Cyrulnik). 2L’utilisation du concept de résilience en sciences géographiques semble répondre aux bouleversements socio-économiques et technologiques mondiaux extrêmement rapides des dernières décennies qui ont modifié la perception et les modalités de gestion des risques, dans les sociétés industrialisées tout au moins (Beck, 2001). 4La plupart des auteurs s’attardent en effet sur ce couple vulnérabilité/résilience.

Lallau. GEC_sdarticle2.pdf. i3084e. 21693293.2015. Du risque à la catastrophe. On assiste depuis dix ans à la multiplication, en sciences humaines et sociales, des travaux traitant de la catastrophe. En attestent les nombreuses publications, en sociologie [1], en anthropologie [2], en histoire [3] ou en philosophie [4], pour lesquelles elle est un objet central. Certaines revues y ont consacré de substantiels dossiers (Esprit, 2008 ; Le Portique, 2008 ; Terrain, 2010) croisant les différents champs disciplinaires. On peut penser que l’augmentation du nombre de catastrophes ces dernières années (par exemple, le tsunami en 2004, l’ouragan Katrina en 2005, le séisme en Haïti en 2010, plus récemment le tsunami au Japon, mais aussi l’explosion de l’usine AZF en 2001 ou l’attaque terroriste contre les Twin Towers en 2001) explique très largement que celles-ci fassent l’objet d’une attention particulière, qu’il s’agisse de comprendre ce qu’elles impliquent ou plus spécifiquement d’envisager les manières de s’en prévenir.
