About the Project

Urban planning policies are often considered to be an important mechanism for disaster risk reduction in cities. However evidence shows disasters are not a technical problem and thus require a much more in-depth socio-political understanding. Many technocratic solutions – including urban planning policies – have been introduced over the years that have actually increased vulnerability of various segments of marginalised population. The aim of this project is to explore the role of urban planning in disaster risk reduction and disaster risk creation in different geographical and social settings.
