Disaster prevention and reconstruction from a gender equal society perspective: Lessons from the Great East Japan Earthquake


This special section of the annual white paper on gender equality 2012 provides an analysis and proposal under the theme of disaster prevention and reconstruction from a gender equal society perspective. It addresses the need to improve and strengthen disaster prevention and mitigation measures in anticipation of large-scale events similar to the Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent tsunami in the future. It examines the Great East Japan Earthquake as it happened as well as the government’s response to the event from the perspective of a gender equal society. It also clarifies any lessons that are of particular note in the context of implementing current or formulating future disaster prevention and recovery and reconstruction measures.
