Resumen

CARDOSO, María Mercedes. Study of vulnerability and resilience in the city of Santa Fe, Argentina: The role of urban services in general and urban transport in particular. Rev. geogr. Norte Gd. [online]. 2019, n.73, pp.133-159. ISSN 0718-3402.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-34022019000200133.

Within risk theory, vulnerability and resilience emerge as significant categories. The study of vulnerability, its dimensions, its measurement, and its territorial distribution consti-tutes an indispensable diagnose. Resilience, as a capacity of the system for adapting and transforming itself, is a tool for prognosis which also leads to more fair and sustainable societies. The design and implementation of the socio-environmental vulnerability index in the city of Santa Fe, Argentina, has shown the highest risk sectors are found all along the west side of the city, and in the form of islands throughout the north and east sec-tors. In 2010, 22 % of the total population had the highest flood vulnerability, and 70% was vulnerable to all kinds of threats. This research provides elements of analysis for ap-proaching vulnerability and resilience by exploring accessibility to urban services, mainly urban passenger transport.

Palabras clave : Socio-environmental vulnerability; resilience; basic urban services; collective transport; risk.
