Accidents Related to the 2014 Rains and Their Socio-Economic Consequences in the City of Abidjan: The Case of the Municipalities of Abobo and Attécoubé (Côte D’Ivoire)

Abstract : The urban environment is confronted with recurring calamities including floods, landslides and forced escapes of populations during periods of rain. In Côte d'Ivoire, the municipalities of Abobo and Attécoubé suffered enormous material and human damage following the torrential rains of 2014. These urbanized areas are built on large plateaus bordered by thalwegs where 61% of these areas have no drainage network, thus facing a lack of sanitation. Moreover, topographical, rainfall, anthropogenic and technical conditions are factors explaining the occurrence of natural disasters and their consequences in the said communes. The objective of this article is to assess the socioeconomic impact of the occurrence of hazards. It focuses on the identification of risk sectors in the municipalities of Abobo and Attécoubé and the material, human and economic consequences that result from rain accidents.
