An analysis of social vulnerability in a multi-hazard urban context for improving disaster risk reduction policies: The case of Sancaktepe, ˙Istanbul

Despite concerted calls over the past 20 years to ensure that urban development is undertaken in  nmanner that reduces disaster risk, urban planning often remains myopically focused on the built en
