Abstract

This paper describes the goals, approaches, methods and results of the project ACDRS, Approaches and Criteria to Designate Relocation Sites for disaster prone areas. ACDRS was funded by the Urban and Rural Development Branch, Construction and Planning Agency of the Interior Ministry and is a part of the research program "Enhancing Innovation and Implementation of Disaster Reduction". ACDRS reviewed the relocation projects of the 921 Earthquake to identify key factors for successful relocations. Those factors were further developed as criteria and adopted the concept and advanced techniques in disaster risk management and GIS land suitability analysis to assess safety of lands for relocation and develop land-use strategies to meet disaster risk reduction and mitigation requirements. The results of the project include strategies and standard operating procedures for relocation development, in addition to assessments of safety of lands in disaster prone areas and their suitability of relocation purposes.
