Since the turn of the century, there have been significant changes in the field of planning and in the practices carried out for the sake of "urban regeneration" in Turkey that merit analysis. The most important of these changes are represented by urban regeneration projects introduced to mitigate disaster risk and increasing the quality of urban life. Urban regeneration projects in Turkey continue to develop through segmental plan changes that lack scientific justification. This type of approach not only leads to population growth exceeding the figures predicted in the upper scale plan decisions of the city but also reduces the green areas, education and health infrastructure, social facilities, and cultural facilities associated with population growth. This pattern tends to compel people to live in a city where the quality of urban life has declined. Increasing population density through segmental and project-based urban regeneration prac-tices and deteriorating social due to density are the main reasons behind the diminished resil-ience of urban systems.
