Japan: White paper on disaster management 2015

This white paper looks at the revisions made to disaster countermeasures based on the heavy snows in February 2014, the landslide in Hiroshima in August, 2014 and the eruption of Mt. Ontake in September 2014. It also provides information on the latest disaster risk reduction initiatives implemented by the national government, local governments, and community residents, and introduces a case study on an earthquake centered in northern Nagano Prefecture in which no casualties occurred thanks to mutual community support.
