Resumen

BRAVO, Elizabeth. The April´s earthquake in Manabí from the disaster Political Ecology. Universitas [online]. 2017, n.26, pp.235-252. ISSN 1390-8634.  https://doi.org/10.17163/uni.n26.2017.10.

This work reads the earthquake of April 16, 2016, from the Political Ecology of the disasters. Although all members of a community could be exposed to the same type of natural risk, there is a differentiation in the degree of vulnerability and marginality that different sectors face. It is also suggested that there is a type of risk among elites, which has been facilitated by action or omission by the State or local governments, such as tourism development on the “Ruta del Sol”. Finally, a classification of the level of vulnerability of the affected people by the earthquake, is proposed.

Palabras clave : Disaster; vulnerability; risk; marginality; facilitation; shock.
