Japan: White paper on disaster management 2017

The White Paper on Disaster Management in Japan 2017 provides an overview of current disaster management measures in Japan, including for natural hazards and nuclear disasters. It also looks at recent progress on disaster measures and policy initiatives with a particular focus on those implemented in FY2016.

This white paper also has a special feature entitled “Revising Disaster Management Policies in Light of the Kumamoto Earthquake.” This special feature describes the push-mode support which was mobilized to provide supplies in the aftermath of the April 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake, partnerships between NPOs and local government, and other important responses by the government. It also discusses measures to be developed in the future, including information-sharing mechanisms and the formulation of local government aid acceptance plans.
