Japan-World Bank Partnership to Mainstream Disaster Risk Management in Developing Countries (Japanese)

Learning from years of experience confronting natural disasters, Japan has established itself as a global leader in mainstreaming disaster risk management (DRM) in development policies and practices. The Hyogo Framework for required to reduce disaster losses, serves as the backbone of international DRM efforts, and Japan and the World Bank have been working together for several years to share Japanese experiences and knowledge in this area. The collaboration was further strengthened in 2011 after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami through knowledge, advocacy, and operational initiatives, including the development of 32 Knowledge Notes and a series of capacity building programs and seminars in 2012-13. The World Bank and the Japanese Government also jointly drafted the Sendai Report, a conceptual framework designed to help countries mainstream DRM to reduce their risks from natural hazards. The report was launched at the Sendai Dialogue held in Sendai, Japan in October 2012 as the special event of the World Bank-International Monetary Fund (IMF) Annual Meetings, at which global leaders unanimously supported the DRM agenda.
