The Future of Disaster Preparedness and Recovery Efforts (The Japanese Model) Led by Private Entity Partnerships
Leveraging the Power of Corporations through the Corporate Volunteer Network (CVN) and Preparing for Future Disasters
In the wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake, private sector entities have played a vital role and have implemented a variety of projects to support the relief and recovery of the disaster-affected areas.
Corporations worked closely with NPOs and other civil society actors, and there is no doubt that these kinds of cross-sector relations are crucial in preparing for the next disaster. This symposium will introduce examples of multi-stakeholder cooperation in disaster risk reduction and explore outlooks for the future.
