AbstractIn a world where natural disasters are increasing and there is an urgent demand for an ethics of prevention, management and communication, a framework of ethical principles and standards for orienting geoscientists in conducting their professional activity becomes fundamental. The defense against geo-risks involves many actors with different roles. Good relationships between them is necessary to assure efficiency while facing potential natural disasters. Defining a (geo)ethical framework of values means to create a solid base on which a proper management of georisks can operate. By defining roles and responsibilities, Geoethics is a valuable reference to work in this direction and to improve the resilience of human community to disasters.
