This publication is an attempt to bring science, institutions and society together to address the challenges posed by natural and human induced hazards, to the city. It attempts to scale down the urban risk assessment process from city to community level and vice-versa in order to encourage practitioners, government agencies, private sector and institutions, such as school, hospitals, community-based organizations, youth group, and children’s organization, to prepare for any disaster event.

These guidelines are in line with the World Disaster Reduction Campaign, Making Cities Resilient: "My city is getting ready", for which Plan Bangladesh and Islamic Relief Worldwide, under the DIPECHO-V South Asia Plan, have taken initiatives, in the urban areas of Bangladesh to prepare communities and institutions for disaster risks with Technical Support from the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) and Handicap International.
