Les inondations sous presse dans le bassin versant de la Drôme (Rhône-Alpes, France)

Abstract : The first Water resources development and management plan (Schéma d'aménagement et de gestion des eaux) approved in France (1997) and the Riverprize award (2005) have presented the Drôme River basin as a model of integrative and participatory river management. Locally, floods regularly provoke damages and give rise to riverine landowners' worries. Two local newspapers published between 1981 and 2008 were gone through to consider the attitudes toward the river, the hydrological extremes and the crisis management. A statistical analysis of textual data was performed on the corpus. The results highlight the spatial and temporal discrepancies that exist between the positive (inter)national influence of watershed management and the mosaic of public perceptions and expectations related to local specificities Despite well-known biases, newspapers appear as an efficient source for studying the local stakeholders in their daily surroundings.
