By conceptualising local seismic construction practices as capital, this paper proposes a theoretical framework within which its conservation can be envisioned as a means to reducing vulnerability and moving towards more sustainable development. The application of the proposed conceptual framework is demonstrated in the case of Lefkada Island in Greece.(More)
The failure of modern structures in earthquakes where traditional buildings have faired significantly better suggests that technology is not necessarily a panacea for the vulnerability of the built environment. The existence of 'seismic cultures' around the world, whereby local populations learn to adapt to local hazards, may explain the differential losses(More)
Work done in the area of vulnerability reduction by academics and professionals has been a key component in reducing adverse impacts of potential disasters. A primary type of vulnerability in which engineers have an important role to play is that related to the built environment. In particular, the disintegration and collapse of buildings are responsible(More)
