The formulation of strategies to minimize this risk is a complex task that relies on data regarding mainly the hazard, vulnerability and remaining life of buildings. In this paper, the case study of Limassol municipality is discussed. First, the building inventory categorization is presented followed by the selection of hazard scenarios and the development of analytical vulnerability curves. Then, risk assessment is performed leading to the formulation of retrofitting strategies for the sustainable use of buildings.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/3636||Type:||Conference Papers|
