Canoa, a town located in the province of Manabí, has developed in conditions of vulnerability: lack of work and education, without an adequate health system, and with social and political disputes within the community. Once the earthquake occurred, perceptions of the previous conflicts worsened, putting the population at permanent risk of harm from natural hazards. Risk, therefore, is a social condition that is historically and culturally structured according to the particularities of each population. Consequently, the anthropological analysis of disaster is indispensable for interpreting vulnerabilities and risks from a social point of view.
