Promotion of "disaster prevention where humans don’t die"
The thing that must be given the highest priority in disaster prevention is "people will not die". To do so, it is essential not only to develop a hard facility to prevent disasters but also to advance soft measures such as responding appropriately to evacuation by residents. And it is important to specifically consider and prepare countermeasures to be taken when inhabitants and administrations are in emergency from peacetime.
IDA considers that "evacuation" as a soft policy is the most important point for achieving "zero victims" from natural disasters, and how to evacuate according to disaster characteristics and regional characteristics, concrete We are considering evacuation plans and proposing. Also, from the viewpoint of promoting "disaster prevention without human beings", it is necessary to take into consideration the issues faced by local communities and organizations, such as optimal placement plans for evacuation facilities and disaster prevention bases, measures for dealing with crisis management and measures to respond to them, We also propose countermeasures.
In addition, we are working on development and analysis of evacuation simulation to be utilized for these studies, training on risk communication with residents, training to contribute to improving responsiveness to crisis management, and development of such methods.
