Disaster Risk Management
Disaster Risk Management undertakes challenges for economic analyses of catastrophic disaster risk with long-term view points. We formulate dynamic models to examine the process in which people deprived of their important possessions finally decide to rebuild them, as well as to help one another in their community. We evaluate the socio-economic impacts of disaster risk both qualitatively and quantitatively. The main topics are as follows:
1) Economic valuation of catastrophic disaster risk and its mitigation.
2) Economic growth theory under disaster risks.
3) Sustainable management and inheritance of local culture and infrastructure.
