Disaster Resilience Research Division

Toward determining the disatser mechanims as social phenomena and realizing effective disaster response.

In addition to traditional prevention-focused disaster resilience coutermeasures, The Disaster Resilience Research Division identifies disaster response mechanisms in the form of the behaviour and information processing mechanisms of humans facing the brunt of a disaster. Through formulating models for an agile society that can recuperate from disasters, we aim to elucidate the mechanisms of disasters as social phenomena and to implement effective disaster response.
