Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake on the government office reorganization plan. To understand the reorganization plans of 182 government buildings, the author surveyed the websites of 44 municipalities and conducted interviews by telephone and email. It is believed that assigning government offices as disaster prevention centers in each local area and centralizing the functions of public facilities necessary for local life in each government office will realize the combination of disaster prevention and convenient daily life.
