Abstract

This document aims to reclaim the importance of Urban Planning for sustainable development in disaster prevention. It tries to demonstrate how Urban Planning can also become a valuable tool to effectively respond to emergencies. This suggestion becomes the rationale behind long-term decision-making processes. Its pertinence to sustainable development is the goal sought and therefore becomes a key element to attain sustainable development in cities such as Tokyo (Japan) and Bogota (Colombia).
