CAJIGAL-MOLINA, Erick; MALDONADO-GONZALEZ, Ana-Lucía  e  GONZALEZ-GAUDIANO, Edgar J.. Resilience in teachers: A way to improve capacities of populations to face a flood aggravated by climate change. Rev. Diálogo Educ. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.55, pp.1445-1464.  Epub 11-Fev-2020. ISSN 1981-416X.

A way to reduce vulnerability face flooding can be to helping community to develop resilience. High school teachers could be key actors in communities, therefore promoters of actions that foster resilience. This paper describes the methodology and the first results of a study aimed at identifying individual and community resilience in high school teachers in three localities of the municipalities of Tlacotalpan, Cotaxtla and La Antigua in the state of Veracruz, Mexico. Physical and social conditions in the study context increase the fragility of their population, then their vulnerability to flood damage. These floods are possibly aggravated by climate change. There is no any place where the effects of this global phenomenon do not reach. Although the main responsible for climate change are the so-called developed countries, it is the developing countries that suffer most from their impacts. Among its consequences, the increase in global temperature has affected the intensity of tropical cyclones resulting in floods with severe costs in vulnerable municipalities, such as those included in this research.
