Since more than 50% of the global population lives in cities and urban areas and this share is continuing to increase, how to achieve resilience and sustainability of urban areas has become a major issue in urban governance. Basically, it should pay more attention to urban food security and the resilience of urban food systems to provide sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet the urban population fundamental dietary needs with increased risk resulted from global climate change. Hence, the aim of this research program is to investigate the public adaptation behavior and the strategies related to the resilience of urban food systems. In the first year, the factors that affect the residents' emergency supplies (food) preparedness behavior will be investigated and the relationship between disaster risk perceptions with the emergency supplies (food) preparedness behavior will be examined further. Questionnaire survey method was used in this research to collect the disaster risk perceptions of residents in Taipei city and their emergency supplies (food) preparedness behavior. Finally, 1,910 effective samples were collected. The questionnaire was designed based on the influencing factors proposed by the Model of Private Proactive Adaptation to Climate Change (MPPACC). Risk perception and disaster prevention behaviors may be affected by the people's living background, such as household structure, household members' physical and mental conditions, and economic status were all investigated in the questionnaire. The relationship between the risk perception and disaster prevention behavior was examined, and the disaster prevention behavior among different personal attributes, and different types of households were explained. In addition, the factors that affect the residents' emergency supplies (food) preparedness behavior were investigated and the relationship between disaster risk perceptions with the emergency supplies (food) preparedness behavior was also examined further. The findings of this research may contribute to identify the dominant factors affecting emergency supplies (food) preparedness behavior of the residents living in the Taipei city.
