ABSTRACT

Santiago de Cuba Province due to its seismicity, mountainous relief, lithological composition and stratigraphy, tectonic conditions, hydrological and geotechnical conditions, is regarded as the greatest potential for manifestation of geological hazards Cuba. The analysis of this province, notes that there are problems in the geological engineering study, land use and planning, organization, evaluation, management, analysis, implementation, monitoring and control of geological risks in the territory, meaning that management problems exist. To resolve these problems, this research proposes a new procedure for management and reduction of geological risk in Santiago de Cuba province supported by the theoretical foundations of processes management.
