  Resilience in the americas programme (RITA)
To december, 2014


The intervention framework objective in Chile has been built on the backgroud of the earthquake which struck on February 27, 2010, measuring 8.8 on the Richter scale. The earthquake occurred at 105 km northwest of Concepcion and 115 km Southeast of Talca, the respective capitals for the Bio Bio and Maule Regions in Chile, at a depth of only 35 km. This earthquake was subsequently followed by an equally devastating tsunami, which together with the earthquake, left 521 deceased, more then 1.8 million people affected, 370.000 homes destroyed or damaged, and close to 30 billion USD in losses.
