The frequency with which hazards turn to disasters is soaring. Besides the factor of climate variation, errors of decision making during planning are the critical factors. Hence, the purpose of this paper is to focus on exploring the relationship between land use planning, development, and disaster management.
This study takes hazardscape as the basis of a dialogue platform for land use planning and disaster management. The first portion of this study is to discuss the needed disaster management items in the planning process through thematic analysis; the second portion is to construct the relationship between disaster management and land use planning by the paired comparison method.
This study proposes the model for integrating planning and disaster management as the foundation of interdisciplinary collaboration. The phase of site choosing and assessment is the most critical point for starting the works of disaster prevention. The major works includes all‐hazard identification/hazardscape analysis and physical vulnerability: damage potential assessment.
This model is helpful to apply to land‐use decision making for evaluating the issues concerning disasters, and avoiding the increasing loss of lives and property. As the next step, attributes of people and environments and assessment techniques from different disciplines can also be included in the model, to achieve the ultimate goal of an environment.
Should disasters strike despite all relevant measures, the associated planning programs monitored and reviewed to enable necessary adjustments.
