Description :
Based on 3 viewpoints : from population, media and other actors, this analysis attempts to point out the strengths and weaknesses of the official management system, especially by studying the efficiency and the range of the solutions taken. So, it appears that the management of the June 1991 main crisis (eruption) was a success, but difficulties have occurred with lahars risk management. In spite of persistent problems, the management system (monitoring/warning/evacuation) of lahar crises improves year after year. Many direct and indirect factors come together to lock the wheels of the institutional response system.
