Tsunami Disaster Mitigation Course

Visit to facilities for tsunami disaster
prevention in Tohoku/Sanriku District

The tsunami disaster mitigation course began in 2006. The gigantic tsunami that was generated by a major earthquake off Sumatran in 2004 wreaked havoc on the coastal regions of the Indian Ocean. To mitigate such tsunami disasters, it is necessary to take disaster mitigation measures based on the latest information regarding earthquakes and tsunamis. This course provides advanced education and technology for dealing with earthquakes and tsunamis, with the aim of training specialists who can apply and disseminate their acquired knowledge and techniques for tsunami disaster mitigation and introduce tsunami hazard evaluation and early-warning systems in their native countries. The initial target countries were coastal nations around the Indian Ocean, but since 2009 the scope of the course has been expanded to include countries around the Pacific Ocean.
