MATA-LIMA, Herlander et al. Impacts of natural disasters on environmental and socio-economic systems: what makes the difference?. Ambient. soc. [online]. 2013, vol.16, n.3, pp.45-64. ISSN 1809-4422.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-753X2013000300004.

This study focuses on environmental and socioeconomic impacts of natural disasters, and factors that contribute to reduce damage and victims in affected communities. Reflections were carried out - based on quali-quantitative approach - entailing environmental, economic, and social dimensions of sustainability as well their relationships with disasters paradigm (Hazard-Risk-Vulnerability-Resilience) to identify key variables in the reduction of vulnerability and for prevention and mitigation of natural disasters. The results stress that social capital, which is constrained by social e economic structures, exerts a significant influence as reducing factor of vulnerability of affected communities.
