    The purpose of this paper is to carry out a methodological and theoretical reflection on the role of economics in the study of urban environmental issues. Particularly, it approaches the analysis of risk as a category that allow discussing the coherence of traditional economic research tools in development planing, when in their quest for modernization environmental equilibrium is underestimated. Therefore, it is necessary to set the field in context with analytical structures that recognize its contribution to urban management as a matter of complex thinking that involves the treatment of risks and disasters as concomitant problems to the pace of progress that Orthodox development planning has overlooked.
