Description:As part of the celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of the Geological Journal of Central America, an analysis of the issue of disasters is currently studied in the field of risk management and how this issue is addressed in the content of the articles published in the magazine. Are chosen for analysis articles explicitly refer to issues related to risk management, it is obvious that the largest number of items RGAC relate to the issue of risk, they address relevant aspects for management as is the characterization of the processes that generate threats (tectonics, seismology, volcanology, geotechnical), among others. Risk is an intrinsic characteristic of the transformation of the environment, both the quantitative and qualitative study of the transformation inputs conducive to the prevention and land use planning.The paradigm shift from the study of the event as synonymous with the paradigm of disaster risk management gives importance to the construction of risk scenarios on the prediction and prognosis related to tectonic events.
