dc.description.abstractThis chapter presents results from the case study in the alpine community Badia (Italy) which was hit by an unusually large landslide in December 2012. The objective of the study was to understand the resilience of the population towards natural hazards and showing how local knowledge contributes to community identity, with a particular focus on risk perception, risk behaviour and community networks. We adopted a mixed approach, including quantitative and qualitative methods. With questionnaires, we assessed how people’s risk perception changed due to the event, the role of knowledge and hazard experience, and how people perceived the intervention activities carried out by the supporters. Using social network mapping from population survey data and from qualitative expert interviews we investigated the role of existing networks, how present responsibilities and relationships between institutions and persons in charge of natural hazard management are shaped and how networks acting at different levels interact.en_US
