Urban Risk and Planning

E-Learning Course - Risk Sensitive Land-Use Planning

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

Due to the increased population and the scarcity of land increasingly people are choosing the unsafe areas for settlements. The new paradigm in disaster management focuses on reducing people's vulnerability to natural hazard risk. Urban vulnerability and risk, determined by the location of residential areas, industries, public facilities and the urban morphology, proactively can be managed with adequate land use planning. Through land use planning disaster risk factors can be modified to decrease vulnerability, increase resilience and mitigate potential damages and losses.
