    En el presente estudio se realiza una revisión y se explora la relación entre los conceptos de pobreza y vulnerabilidad social. Se asume la primera como escasez de ingresos monetarios para cubrir necesidades básicas alimentarias y no alimentarias de los hogares y la segunda como el impacto que provocan eventos económicos, sociales y ambientales extremos, sobre las capacidades de las personas y las comunidades. Se utiliza la revisión de estadísticas latinoamericanas y se revisa la situación de Colombia a partir de fuentes secundarias de información. Se observan y describen sinergias entre pobreza y vulnerabilidad, como elementos esenciales que se encuentran en los ámbitos del trabajo, del capital humano, del capital social y del capital físico. ****** In the present study a revision is made and it explores the relation between the poverty and vulnerability concept.
