La spatialité des dommages et risques environnementaux comme point de convergence entre géographie, écologie et politique

Abstract : The analysis of complex systems such as those captured by scientific ecology shows that the occurrence of damaging events is difficult to predict. Moreover, most of these unpredictable events will be those with the strongest echoes, giving full meaning to the concept of risk as cross between hazard and vulnerability. Each of these two components of risk has a spatial dimension more or less obvious, and to understand the natural risk, occurrence and spatial extension of the hazard and the vulnerability should be analyzed jointly. Thus, we show that for environmental risk, the question of "where?" posed by the prediction refers certainly to ecological and geographical problems, but also economic and political. We therefore argue that the problems posed by the intersection of the two uncertainties (the spatial distribution of the hazard and the distribution of issues on the territory) must induce strengthen links between reflexive geography, ecology and politics.
