Abstract
Countries need to assess the expected risk due to natural hazards as a permanent activity in their financial plan; otherwise, they will experience a lack in the information required by the application of disaster risk reduction policies. In this article, a risk assessment methodology is proposed that uses, in one hand, empiric estimations of loss, based on information available in local disaster data bases, allowing to estimate losses due to small events; on the ot her hand, it uses probabilisti...
