Resumen

This research work has a great influence on the physical security of the urban infrastructure and the citizens of our capital city, that is why it is necessary to apply prevention strategies since our city is located in a very vulnerable area to seismic events, mainly huaycos, floods and landslides, settlements, landslides and other superficial mass movements, so it is necessary to have knowledge of the causes and effects of these phenomena, the different types and carrying capacity of soils in the districts of Metropolitan Lima, in order to contribute to the knowledge of the degree of vulnerability in which urban areas, marginal urban areas, human settlements are exposed. In conclusion, surveys of public servants allowed us to determine that only 55% of them know the meaning of risk and vulnerability, so 45% are totally unaware of these terms. Likewise, surveys of the general public on the lack of a prevention culture, 83% indicated that they did, hence the need to apply a course or training on disaster risk management issues at all educational levels.
