Abstract

En el presente artículo, se analiza la problemática de la comunicación con la población para la prevención de desastres en el Perú, con la finalidad de aportar en la articulación de una estrategia de prevención de desastres. El uso correcto de la información geocientifica en los medios de comunicación, puede contribuir en esta labor. Las características de la empresa en el Perú, hacen necesaria una mayor formación en ciencias de la comunicación por parte de los profesionales de las Geociencias y el apoyo de especialistas.The communication process between the geoscientists and native communities in risk areas can significantly affect disaster prevention and land use planning. In Peru, the problem of disaster prevention is a fundamental policy due to unfamiliarity and deficiency of the associate information on the population. It is possible that talk of disaster prevention it will be an unlikely ideal in a country where most towns have settled on unplanned projects by the constant change and the lack of interest from the authorities in such topics. However, it is anachronistic that the rural communities and towns continue to live without a plan to enable them to improve their quality of life. The correct use of geoscience information in the mass media can help in this work. The characteristics of the enterprise in Peru require more training by professionals in the geosciences and support communication specialists. In this paper, we analyze the problem of communication for disaster prevention in Peru, with the aim of contributing to the articulation of a disaster prevention strategy.
