講演タイトル: Building risk communication among interdependent groups for self-organizing efforts to improve disaster resilience
講演概要:This presentation is concerned with the transition from risk communication to resilience communication, a term used by Professor Hayashi and colleagues. I discuss how self-organizing efforts among interdependent groups can serve as a basis for self-organizing efforts (a crucial aspect of building resilience in any complex system). I use two examples to show that the concepts are relevant at many levels of social organization. At one extreme, I discuss risk communication among the interdependent infrastructure systems in a region, based on a case study in Vancouver, BC. At another extreme, I discuss efforts in Japan by the Disaster Rescue Stockyard, in Nagoya, to build disaster resilience among neighbors in small rural or semi-urban areas of Japan. The results point to a new paradigm for risk communication, or more accurately, resilience communication, to enhance mutual efforts to work with peers to build resilience without the aid of governments, aside for organizational support.
