Cities, ‘the magnet of hope’ are pulling people into themselves without preparing for them, this influx leads to overconcentration of people in the already blighted cities centers, this creates new problems or aggravates the existing ones which makes the residents vulnerable to various dangers. This work reviews a few urban planning theories, triangulated them and introduces a modified version. It also analysis vulnerability in the slums of core city centers and suggested strategies that can reduce it. The work will be of tremendous use to policy makers, urban planners, academic community and the general public.
