For urban resilience research, Istanbul’s problems regarding disasters such as earthquakes, floods, fires, climate crisis, environmental crisis and risks related to economic crisis, income and wealth inequality, migration and population crisis, epidemic diseases and public health will be examined. With the help and participation of interested stakeholders, we will work on making Istanbul’s disaster management more effective. We aim to reduce risks and possible damages and increase Istanbul’s resilience to disasters. For that purpose, we will develop particular resilience plans for vulnerable groups such as immigrants, women, disabled people, elderly, children and street animals that will be affected by risks and disasters differently.
