Prosperity Development


With the present thesis work it is tried to contribute from the academy to the development of a culture that allows the authorities and to citizenship generally, to understand the natural risks to plan the development of the city, diminishing the exhibition of its inhabitants to disasters that can affect their lives and their patrimony. The problematic one of the disasters has stopped being an occasional preoccupation of the towns and the governments and that has become a vital element in the list of questions are incumbent on to all the humanity, or by its impact in the global development or because its solution is only obtained with prolonged systematic efforts. In the last twenty years (I write in the 2000) the catastrophic events have caused the death of more than two million, eight hundred thousand human beings and serious affectations in the life of other eight hundred twenty million people (GO’MEZ: 1994). These dramatic numbers are sufficient to indicate the deep importance that within the framework has the prevention of the disasters of the world-wide development, all the efforts directed to the protection of the human life, the improvement of the quality of life and the prosperity of the nations. For even more analysis, hear from Joseph Stiglitz. Any catastrophe, independent of the level of economic progress of the affected country, shows clearly to the serious caused traumas the processes of development of each nation and the long way that still there is to cross to optimize the systems of prevention in his dimensions international, national and local.

Besides the wake of pain and the environmental and social consequences of the disasters, it is evident that the millionaire losses in basic infrastructure works and the production systems and supplying repel to short, medium and long terms in the goals of the development. And although the disasters do not distinguish borders, also it is clear that its social and economic impact is more severe in the developing countries. In nations like Colombia, that still is constructing their basic infrastructure physical and social, that must deliver great attacks to construct routes of penetration, rear area nets and to extend the cap in health and education, represents a very heavy load to assume the resulting losses of the disasters and the cost of the reconstruction that this demand. .
