Japan: large-scale floods and earthquakes

Source(s):  Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

OECD reviews of risk management policies:

The case studies consider several issues of particular interest to policy makers, such as how to take climate change into account for long term policy planning related to large scale floods, and Japan’s unique earthquake insurance scheme for damages whose probability and impact are hard to accurately assess.
