dc.description.abstractWithin the context of the PaiRisc project, the coastal risk landscape can be defined as a coastal zone subjected to different kinds of risks. We used a systemic approach to defining the risks, their impacts, their mechanisms of action, feedback loops and stakeholder perceptions. Our objective was to integrate the social dimension into the landscape risk map for the Maresme Sud coast, a short distance north of Barcelona. Methodologically, the research was based on semi-structured interviews and institutional and perception analyses of socioeconomic and environmental impacts and transport infrastructures and urban and recreational activities at risk. Our research sheds light on the social network framework governing risk in Maresme Sud and provides contextual results for improving public perceptions understanding. We conclude with a discussion and recommendations regarding coastal risk management.
