A policy proposal submitted by The Evacuation of Hospitals in the Fukushima Sheltering Zone Project has been taken up in the Cabinet Office’s “Expert recommendations: Disaster prevention 4.0 -Concept for the future-.”
The policy proposal offers an idea of “personal-network help,” a new concept of disaster prevention and disaster response for surviving a crisis, in addition to the ideas such as self-help, public help, mutual help, and cooperative help, on which the disaster damage prevention plan has been traditionally based.
The details of the concept are explained in an RJIF book,“Personal Networks and Social Resilience –The Evacuation of Hospitals in the Fukushima Sheltering Zone,”published in February 2017.
※The Cabinet Office’s ‘Disaster prevention 4.0 -Concept for the future-‘ is a project to consider and to offer opinions on necessary provisions for disaster risk which is thought to arise by climate change caused by global warming. The Expert recommendations were announced in June 2017.
