MAYA, Mario Alejandro. Flood hazard estimation: actors and social responses to the risk scenario in the southern neighborhoods of Mar del Plata, Buenos Aires (Argentina). Estudios Socioterritoriales [online]. 2020, vol.27, pp.24-24. ISSN 1853-4392.

In recent years, southern Mar del Plata has witnessed the growth of gated community developments. In this regard, investments were made in the construction and specific equipment that have modified the geography of the place. In addition to this, there was an increase in the number of floods in that city sector. Consequently, there were large material losses and serious conditioning for the normal development of the community. Given this problem, the main objective of the work is to make a diagnosis of the risks that probable “dangerous events” developed in close proximity to private enterprises cause in the Parque Independencia neighborhood. Thus, the work has a double purpose: on the one hand, considering the way in which actors from different levels of organization and role have been articulated; and, on the other hand, making a diagnosis of the study area in order to estimate the risk scenario where the inhabitants are exposed to the probable direct and indirect losses that would cause a flood over the territory The text concludes that, as a result of the pattern of territorial occupation and the components of vulnerability identified in the socio-economic contexts exposed to the danger, it supports the characterization of said territory as a risk scenario.

Palabras clave : Gated community; Risk scenario; Social actors; Dangerousness.
