This book is a collection of short essays on the topic of the role of urban planning in natural and man-made disasters. Starting 2013 a number of events took place at the Centre for Architectural and Urban Studies (CSAU) of the “Ion Mincu” University of Architecture and Urbanism on the topic of the impact of natural and man-made hazards on urban areas. These included guests with experience in Portugal and from the cooperation with Portugal in European networks. From this point of view the book is a continuation of a former publication of CSAU, regarding the impact of the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. The book is bilingual, in Romanian and English.
