[1] Procedure for the continuation of IISEE training courses

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of Japan is now asking each responsible ministry of target country to submit a list of JICA training courses that each country would like to send trainees in 2012 and the next years (deadline of submission is mid-September 2011). It will be very much appreciated if you or your organization could inform corresponding ministry of your country to select "Seismology, Earthquake Engineering (and Recovery)" course and "Tsunami Disaster Mitigation" course as selected courses of your country.

earthquake engineering. Since both have provided lectures at IISEE, they started to guide individual studies (master degree paper of GHRIPS) for participants from developing countries.
