Human capacity building that supports community disaster management
The City of Sendai sustained serious damage from the Great East Japan Earthquake disaster, which occurred on March 11, 2011. A lesson learned from the disaster was that the power of nature is uncontrollable. Therefore, the City of Sendai are pursuing efforts in human capacity building that supports community disaster management that local governments and communities can engage in as DRR. This presentation introduces a part of these actions. It is hoped that these actions are able to help in many places and enable communities to engage in DRR to develop and enhance their overall resilience.
