YANEZ-ROMO, Verónica, MUNOZ-PARRA, Carlos and DZIEKONSKI-RUCHARDT, Matías. Acknowledging socio-territorial vulnerability from a methodological construction. AUS (Valdivia), 2016, no.20, p.56-61. ISSN 0718-7262.
Jointly with the Fundación Superación de la Pobreza and to express gratitude to DICYT Research Project No. 091312YR, Vice-Rector's Office of Research, Development and Innovation of Universidad de Santiago de Chile (USACH), this work revolves around the concept of social vulnerability, closely related to urban territories and the issues they pose. Once the concept of Territorial Social Vulnerability has been defined, the territory is zoned in macro-areas of study, according to their political-administrative division, in order to identify determinant factors and variables that will serve as input to develop a methodological proposal to diagnose and identify the different levels of social vulnerability at regional and communal scale, considering its territorial impacts. This is expected to efficiently support current government targeting tools and improve policies, plans and/or programs aimed at disadvantaged population groups.
Keywords: Socio-territorial vulnerability; territorial planning; territorial management; poverty reduction.
