PROFESSOR YASUO TANAKA: STRATEGY AND ALLIANCE FOR URBAN DISASTER RISK REDUCTION



Building for tomorrow
The Alliance for UDRR (AUDRR) needs to be built by collaboration among stakeholders in different sectors and disciplines in each city. 



For Kobe, the local AUDRR is established by RCUSS. By having a common framework for UDRR, a local, regional and/or international collaboration among UDRR specialists can be achieved more systematically by identifying and evaluating the vulnerabilities of their cities in each category through a common under- standing. 




The RCUSS UDRR training has produced an international network of former participants in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, and also in the Latin American regions, with which they share similar climates, cultures and sometimes languages.
By promoting collaboration among participants in RCUSS training and/or those interested in the RCUSS framework within each region, it is hoped that a better and more coherent UDRR knowledge and strategy may be developed for each region.
