Abstract

Earthquakes account for the most relevant natural risks with a high index of unpredictability that afflict many countries in the world, in many of which the level of development and socio-economic conditions do not allow an adequate response to the effects caused by catastrophes. The unsuitability of public structures and the lack of awareness and consciousness within public opinion towards seismic risk, which is already severely disregarded in industrialised countries, is accentuated in developing countries where populations are daily harassed by the struggle to satisfy the most basic needs.
