Implementation methodologies

We sincerely would like to share our experiences with the people of the world. With that aim, we will hold next month the World Ministerial Conference on Disaster Reduction in Tohoku, the very region struck by the Great East Japan Earthquake. Japan will also provide $3 billion in support to developing countries in the field of disaster reduction over the next three years.
