Abstract

The local inhabitants of the Danube Delta live in constant fear of floods. Our objective is to reveal significant attitudes of locals with respect to this natural, probable risk. Number of participants: 143 inhabitants. Our objective is to reveal significant attitudes of locals with respect to this natural, probable risk. Content analysis and statistical procedures revealed concrete aspects of subjects' perceptions: cognitive contents, emotional aspects, behavioural anticipation, relationships between demographic variables and perceptions. There is need for risk management interventions: risk maps, communication between authorities and inhabitans, information, training for skills in flood events, education about natural risks.
