Risk Reduction in Proper Urban Planning Policy.


A proper urban planning policy should include the modes of risk reduction in the event a disaster occurs. There are various hazards facing urban cities around the world.   For Instance, Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh has over the years faced various disasters such as cyclones, earthquakes, floods, and fires (Huq, 2016). The urban planning of such a city should put in place measures to mitigate the disasters. This paper address the three possible interventions; relocation, eviction, and upgrading as possible measures in the creation of disaster-resilient communities.


Jha (2010) defines relocation as activities entailing the rebuilding of community property, public infrastructure, and assets in a different location. Relocation is carried out due to various reasons. The community may be occupying land that’s deemed inhabitable due to the current crisis hence relocation to a different place. Also, the community may be displaced from the current location by a disaster and relocation becomes the best option to avert future risks. The key issue in the relocation of communities is finding an ideal site (Jha 2010,). Another issue arises from the location of the community to be resettled. The physical location change may not help much in averting imminent disasters if it’s in the same physical location as the former site.
