(by Google translation. Translation will be reset by reloading.)

What is DRH?

   Disaster Reduction Hyperbase-Asian Application (DRH-Asia) is a facility disseminating disaster reduction technology and knowledge. It has been designed for potential use by policy makers, community leaders, practitioners, and motivated researchers who wish to make access to appropriate technical know-how's that can help them establish practical disaster management plans.

   The DRH offers open and interactive access and participation. Its major components consist of DRH Database (Find technologies), DRH Forum (Propose a technology ; Discuss technologies), and DRH Links (DRH partners). It also provides DRH Project (DRH Project activities) allowing access to all records of the DRH Project (Phase I: April 2005-March 2006, Phase II: July 2006-March 2009 / major sponsor: MEXT).

   While DRH-Asia is focused on Asian context, it is ready to accommodate contributions from other regions to enhance cross-regional collaboration.

   The DRH was developed in an effort for implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Actions 2005-2015 adopted at WCDR (World Conference on Disaster Reduction 2005), specifically as a component of “Portfolio for disaster reduction” proposed by the government of Japan. NIED served as a lead institution in close collaboration with UN-ISDR, MEXT, CAO, KU, BNU, NSET, SEEDS, IIEES, ADRC, and other institutions constituting an active multilateral team.
