Korea is not safe from these kinds of natural disasters. Typhoon Rusa and Maemi hit the nation and caused extensive damages. Because natural disasters frequently hurt urban areas in recent days, the need for disaster prevention measures in urban context are emphasized. In this sense, this research reviews the concept and status of disaster preventing city plan in Korea.

For the latter, it investigates the Act on Disaster and Safety Management and the Act on Natural Disaster Mitigation Measures.
