Anti-disaster City

Disaster Prevention Safe City

As natural disasters become more numerous and complex throughout the world, more attention has been given to corporate safety and security. Ever since Hyogo-Kobe was struck by the devastating Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake in 1995, the area has been promoting ”creative reconstruction” that pushes for the construction of disaster-resilient cities where citizens can feel safe. Now, with the establishment of facilities such as the Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution, the Asian Disaster Reduction Center, the Hyogo Emergency Medical Center, the WHO Kobe Center, and the JICA Kansai International Center, Hyogo-Kobe acts as a hub for sharing disaster mitigation and management information. With Hyogo-Kobe’s efforts to build safe and secure communities as well as disaster-resilient urban areas, you can be sure that external risk factors will be reduced.
