Abstract
Countries prone to seismic hazard need to assess the expected risk as a permanent activity in their financial plan; otherwise, they will experience a lack in the information required for the application of disaster risk reduction policies. In this article, a risk assessment methodology is proposed that uses, on the 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 other hand, it uses probabi...
