Capítulo 19 ESTRATEGIAS DE MITIGACION Y CONTROL DE AMENAZAS NATURALES EN AREAS DE PIEDEMONTE   ALLEVIATION STRATEGIES AND CONTROL OF NATURAL THREATS IN PIEDMONT AREAS   Alberto I J Vich y Mariela López Rodríguez     Abstract The piedmont at the west of Gran Mendoza, where more than 800,000 people inhabit, is one of the elements of the Mendoza landscape maintaining a close relation with society. It undergoes strong disturbances of anthropic origin unleashing an entire series of processes that begin with an alteration of the hydrological cycle and continues with the degradation of the environment. We present here a management plan, formed by a group of integrated actions, oriented and coordinated over the variable environment elements of a basin, toward the regulation of the functioning of the ecosystem. Also, to raise the life quality of its inhabitants.   The actions are led to attempt and reverse the present degradation trend and to orienting the diverse torrential basins toward a self-regulating system for significantly reducing the flood probability. Besides, for restoring, maintaining and bettering biodiversity and the ecological services, and to orient and articulate the different disciplines enabling for an integrated environment perception and for explaining the man - environment interrelations within the frame of sustainability. Given the proximity of the urban area, we have developed some intervention proposals or concrete strategies to minimize the risks provoked by urbanizing the piedmont as well as minimizing negative impacts, and defining parameters orienting the piedmont occupation in regards to danger in face of natural hazards.
