Abstract: This article presents a methodology for an estimate of the benefit cost ratio of the seismic risk reduction of buildings portfolio at broad scale, for a World region, allowing comparing the results obtained for the countries belonging to that region. This methodology encompasses: i) the generation of a set of random seismic events and the evaluation of the spectral accelerations at the buildings location- ii) the estimation of the buildings built area, the economic value, as well as the classification in structural typologies- iii) the development of vulnerability curves for each typology- iv) the estimation of the annual average loss of the buildings portfolio in the current conditions as well as in the case of a hypothetical structural intervention. The benefit cost ratio is obtained by comparing the annual average loss with the reinforcement costs. This methodology has been applied to the portfolio of public schools of fourteen countries of Latin America and The Caribbean, for evaluating the feasibility of the seismic risk reduction at a national scale.
