To fulfill its mission effectively, the Cabinet Office has created two special organizations: four Councils on key policy fields (Council on Economic and Fiscal Policy, Council for Science and Technology Policy, Central Disaster Management Council, and Council for Gender Equality), and Ministers of State for Special Missions.
Disaster Reduction Goal
The Cabinet Office works to make Japan more resilient against natural disasters; it addresses all phases of disasters, including prevention, mitigation and preparedness, emergency response, and recovery and reconstruction. The Central Disaster Management Council, plays a critical role in planning for earthquakes, flooding, and other large-scale natural disasters.
