SANTOS, Rúbia dos. Management of disasters and social assistance policy. Rev. katálysis [online]. 2012, vol.15, n.1, pp.32-40. ISSN 1982-0259.

This article reflects on the risk management system in the municipality of Blumenau, Santa Catarina, through actions undertaken by the Social Assistance Policy. It used a plural approach that articulated document analysis to qualitative techniques, such as participant observation. Previously conducted studies about risk were examined as a constructed process that contributed to the intensification of socio-environmental disasters in the region. It found that the lack of integrated and participative planning results in fragmentation of actions, an absence of interdisciplinarity and a gap between administrators, technicians and those affected.

Keywords : Socio-environmental disasters; Social Assistance Policy; Social Work.
