Digging into the available information on earthquake related disasters in Esmeraldas. What does it tell us about the connexion between knowledge and DPP?

Abstract : This working paper deals with contributions and pitfalls of (earthquake related) disasters databases regarding prevention policies. It sheds light on the links between (different types of) knowledge and risk management, by analysing databases (e.g. DesInventar, EM DAT) as well as by addressing other sources of information on past events. It stresses on the case of the city of Esmeraldas (Ecuador), as an additional input to better catch and tackle longstanding obstacles to the improvement of DPP.
