Hazard Mitigation

Hazard mitigation is defined as the proactive measures taken to increase resilience and reduce or eliminate the long-term impact (loss of life and property) from natural and human-caused risks.

Introduction

Here you will find several sections related to risk mitigation– access to the pages of the Virtual Community Center, Resilient Centers, Virtual Community Center Atlas, technical information, and the glossary of terms related to risk mitigation.

Basin Vulnerability Against the Impact of Hurricanes

This document is one of many tools to learn about the level of vulnerability of the hydrographic basin of the Estuario de la Bahía de San Juan against extreme hurricanes. It analyzes the correlation between human activity and resources, providing data to understand what causes natural events to become economic and social disasters. Through the articles written by the team of the Estuario de la Bahía de San Juan Program and by collaborators from the private sector and academic sector, the document provides context and learnings and offers recommendations on public policy and civic action. Along with other analyses that we conduct, this data provides an updated mitigation plan.
