This knowledge note focuses on various aspects of disaster risk reduction (DRR) and environmental management, including studies on: (i) developing record of school experiences from the East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami (EJET); (ii) building school-based disaster resilient community, which includes a review of past DRR activities; (iii) interlinking DRR education with Education for Sustainable Development (ESD); (iv) strengthening community network in temporary housing facilities; and (v) the role of social capital in post-disaster recovery. It is part of a series, which is expected to continue with periodical publication for the next 3 to 5 years with close insights on community recovery in the Tohoku Region, Japan.

After 2 years since the East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, the Tohoku Recovery Research Group of Kyoto University continues to disseminate its research on the experience and lessons learned from EJET to help strengthen disaster resilience of disaster prone regions in Japan and the world.
