Description Disasters are a set of elements composed of risks, hazards, vulnerabilities, resilience and exposure. Although there often are disaster recovery funds, these are never enough to meet the needs of people. Based on official data from 2000 to 2018, this work looks at the occurrence of geological and hydrometeorological disasters affecting tourist destinations at the municipal level in Mexico. Therefore, the objectives of the study are: to characterize the occurrence of disasters on tourist destinations in Mexico, as well as the types of phenomena that have affected them; and, to identify certain implications for the emergency and disaster management according to the General Law of Civil Protection. In addition, the paper offers some reflections based on personal experiences on disaster and emergency management. These focus on decision-making, and the introduction of preventive measures to reduce organizational vulnerability and promote business resilience in the tourist sector.
Los desastres son un conjunto de elementos integrados por riesgos, amenazas, vulnerabilidades, resiliencia y grados de exposición. Aunque existen fondos catastróficos para su atención, no siempre pueden dar cobertura a los eventos registrados. Con datos oficiales del periodo de enero de 2000 a junio de 2018, el presente artículo hace referencia a la ocurrencia de desastres geológicos e hidrometeorológicos a nivel municipal, donde se localizan diversos centros turísticos en México. Con base en lo anterior, los objetivos del trabajo son: caracterizar la ocurrencia de desastres en centros turísticos en México; e, identificar las implicaciones del manejo de emergencias y desastres según señala la Ley General de Protección Civil. Además, el texto comparte reflexiones basadas en experiencias personales obtenidas en el manejo de emergencias y desastres, enfocadas en la toma decisiones, y la incorporación de medidas de prevención para disminuir principalmente la vulnerabilidad organizacional y la resiliencia empresarial de una agencia de viajes.
