Farhad Azizpour, Vahid Riahi, Ali Akbar Tagiloo, Khdijeh Karimi


Abstract: The major objective of this paper is document the vulnerability of villages situated near disaster prone in District lake urmia. The study was framed on the lines of Pressure model. We can therefore see that vulnerability - a pressure that is rooted in socio-economic and political processes - is built up and has to be addressed, or released, to reduce the risk of a disaster. Notwithstanding the urgency of the need to find solutions, nor of the magnitude of the problem, there may be an alternative perspective through which to view the crisis it could be viewed as an opportunity for all people to come together and solve the crisis, and in the process everyone involved will be elevated in terms of their physical, emotional, economic and spiritual status. By joining together to solve this huge crisis all people involved, whether they are local farmers, biologists, geologists, politicians, social workers, health care professionals, professors, students, construction workers, laborers, secretaries, drivers, or simply local people who care, all of them can contribute in a significant manner and in the process extract great meaning and value out of their efforts and their lives.
