EBA conducts Kumamoto Fieldwork on disaster management, preparedness and recovery efforts

From February 20 to March 1, SOI Asia’s EBA (Evidence-Based Approach) project conducted a fieldwork program in Kumamoto prefecture, hosted by Keio University.

12 participants from the partner universities (UB, UNHAS, USK, Keio, UM, USM) visited several locations in Kumamoto and Minamata city to understand the experiences of local communities with natural/man-made disasters, and how they have been tackling the effects towards building a disaster-resilient society. Participants proposed contributions to disaster management and relief back in their countries.
