"Earthquakes never kill people, but the collapse of the buildings kills people"
Conditions that make individual structures and the settlement as a whole vulnerable, or exposed to suffer the consequences of events related to the prioritized hazards, are singled out.
Collecting, classifying, filtering, distributing and archiving information can be aided by digital tools.
