SeRV (Shinnyo-en Relief Volunteers) is a Shinnyo-en volunteer organization formed in 1995 to aid in disaster relief efforts. Shinnyo-en facilities that function as SeRV bases have emergency supplies of food, blankets, and supplies permanently stocked. Government agreements also allow Shinnyo-en to shelter people displaced by natural disasters.
Creating relations with casual acquaintances during peace times is crucial in reducing the extent of damage and loss of lives during a disaster. This session will report on the activities on the ground in the affected regions and will include an idea-exchange discussions session too.
Practitioners of redevelopment, disaster risk reduction and recovery activities at the grassroots level during the Great East Japan Disaster will exchange ideas and engage in several thematic discussions.
This strategic workshop is mandated to create a UN led Global common platform, UN Global-Sat, that allows sharing of space and data segments with its ability to serve as a strong tool for nation’s disaster management and development needs, with Keynote by Ms. Simona Di Pippo, Director, UN-OOSA.
