The book concludes in Chapter 7 with concrete policy recommendations for residents, NGOs, and policy makers in Japan and around the world. Drawing on the experiences of residents, cities, prefectures, and the national government, this chapter illustrates how Japan’s experiences can inform and assist other vulnerable communities around the world. Building on the calls of those who have advocated for developing both “disaster culture” and “disaster institutions,” chapter 7 provides residents, NGOs, and governments with specific ways that they can improve resilience using both bottom-up and top-down approaches. Rather than hoping that physical infrastructure will buffer future risks, vulnerable communities can take control of their futures and invest in social infrastructure and programs that deepen social ties and enhance resilience.
