El riesgo y su gestión en Ecuador: Una mirada de geografía social y política

Abstract : From the mid 2000’s on, Ecuador has been facing critical changes in both political and institutional domains. National risk management policy is consistent with a broader Latin-American trend in this area. In Ecuador, risk policy is particularly remodelled on the basis of the new Constitution. The inquiry of the politics of risk as well as the national and decentralized system of risk management acknowledges the insightful perspective of social and political geography to figure key aspects out, in three different ways. An empirical part is dedicated to research outcomes stemming from a national and local research on risk management, its implementation, its levers and obstacles, as well as its consequences on the ground, as for communities and institutions. On methodological basis, this book is an opportunity to set out a constructivist framework so that the very diverse reasons that make people and places vulnerable can be accounted for. In conceptual terms, different approaches to risk are discussed, as they frame the way risk is considered, and the way it is addressed by different people and institutions.
