Abstract

<p>In order to contribute to reconsideration appropriate policies on countermeasures against natural and man-made disasters in Japan in a period of population decrease, we investigated the actual state of disaster management in New Zealand which has really similar natural environment causing many kinds of hazards, though much lower density society than Japan. In the object country, the disaster management is operated with a framework of Civil Defence Emergency Management (CDEM) based on the "4Rs" approach and the "CIMS2". The CDEM system is applied to any hazards including infectious disease, major transport accident and terrorism. They lay relatively more emphasis on appropriate response actions rather than structural measures to mitigate hazards' damage. </p><p></p>
