Abstract

This paper introduces the issues emerging in the context of recovery after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake. It considers the historical development of recovery planning in Japan and its influence on the present recovery strategies. The authors have tried to point out the insufficiencies of existing policies to deal with the unexpected magnitude of this disaster and identify a set of six principles for recovery which would enable a better equipped society both in terms of pre-disaster preparedness and post-disaster recovery.
