Protection Planning of Historical and Cultural City Based on the Concept of Disaster Prevention and Reduction
Wenchuan earthquake caused the heavy losses in relation to a number of valuable historical and cultural cities in the disaster areas. A comparison to the experiences concerning prevention and reduction planning systems applied in the advanced countries found that the lack of similar ideas before the earthquake contributed one of the main factors to the losses. A further review of the whole post-disaster reconstruction planning system and a field survey affirmed that the protection of the historical and cultural cities was specified in principle, but, in practice, the special protection planning was ignored and the protection endeavor was needed. Therefore, some objective suggestions and opinions regarding historical and cultural city planning and construction were inferred from the viewpoints of disaster prevention and reduction.
