Inequity. Vulnerability. Reduction of Riesgos.


This article deals with inequality in the distribution and illegality of land tenure in Ecuador and how these factors are determinants of vulnerability, taking into account two specific case studies, such as the cantons of Pedernales, in the province. Manabí and Rioverde, in the province of Esmeraldas. An empirical methodology of work was used with an in situ and investigative field research, with the application of the PAR Model (Pressure and Disaster Release) and the GINI coefficient, for land tenure, it is also observed that the dynamic pressures of the territory affect the economically less favored population in a higher percentage, it is concluded that the proper management of the land is an action that minimizes the existing risk and reduces the future risk.
