The growing coincidence of occurrence of natural hazards and vulnerable societies, leading to economic damages and fatalities, has triggered more studies on benefits of prevention measures. This chapter describes a study that aims to demonstrate benefits of risk-prevention measures by applying the KULTURisk methodology (see Chapter 6). The demonstration was implemented in the Ubaye Valley (Barcelonnette town), France. Our findings show that the methodology is an adaptable decision-making tool that may be used to support the analysis of alternative scenarios for flood-risk reduction. © 2015 Elsevier Inc.
