Cultural heritage protection in disaster contexts


Vulnerable groups in the context of disaster management refer to people considered to have diminished capacity to anticipate, cope with, resist and recover from the impact of a disaster. Their exposure to risk could result from factors such as belonging to a group, gender, ethnic or other identity, age, among other factors. Poverty and its common consequences such as malnutrition, homelessness, poor housing, and destitution is also a major contributor to vulnerability.
