Effects of natural hazards on a sustainable city, design by gamification

Paz Fernández, Matías Ceacero


The current settlements present an unsustainable model so that they are currently struggling to achieve sustainability, which is proven by the approval of the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development, constituted by 17 Sustainable Development Goals. One of these SDG tries to make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. In this context, this work intends first to study the relationship between Natural Hazards and sustainability. After that, we want to check the potential of gamification as a tool for the Analysis and Management of Natural Hazards. To achieve these objectives Cities: Skylines video game has been used for the design of our city and the verification of its sustainability, as well as for the simulation of different processes, observing the effectiveness of the mitigation measures established in the city. Finally, we have verified that, despite the need for corrections, gamification can be a useful tool in this procedure.
