Communities are complex systems that result from the interaction among several factors: urban, social-economic, and policy strategy overlap factors. These elements continuously interact with one another, which makes governance notably complex, particularly in the case of risk management. The presentation focuses on seismic risk of the community and several research studies are reported. The seismic risk and resilience are strongly related and they are fundamental in seismic-risk mitigation and governance. The seismic vulnerability (buildings, lifelines, …) play a fundamental role.

Nevertheless, to mitigate the seismic risk of the community, the problem is strongly multidisciplinary and non-linear. However, to improve the earthquake resilience on national, regional or single urban territory, the incorporate engineering/science (physical), social/economic (behavioural), and institutional-dimension (multi-level territorial government) resilience should be considered. Considering that the best strategies cannot be identified, to seismic risk mitigation a multidisciplinary, multi-criteria, and multi-level framework is need. In fact, seismic-risk management may be considered an optimal conjunction between scientific research and decision making.
