Couverture de l’ouvrage Community Practices for Disaster Risk Reduction in Japan
Japan has been known for its innovations in disaster risk reduction. Over the years, Japan has developed innovative technology and tools for risk reduction. After the 1995 Great Hanshin Awaji Earthquake, there has been a strong shift in the approaches of disaster risk reduction, and elements of community-focussed preparedness received significant focus. Although there are several works in Japanese, the English literature on innovations of community-based practices in Japan is rather rare. This book comprises one of the first comprehensive attempts to focus on community-based disaster risk reduction highlighting the experiences of Japan.
Overview of disaster risk reduction and community approaches in Japan.- The Great Hanshin Awaji Earthquake and Aftermath: Turning point of community practices in Japan.- 1999 Hiroshima Disaster and its implication to hazard mapping in Japan.- Social Capital in disaster recovery: Case of Toshashimizu.- Forest resource management in Reihoku and implication to disaster risk reduction.- Community based approaches of risk reduction in urban area: case of Kobe and Kyoto.- School community linkages in disaster recovery in Kamaishi.
