    近年、企業経営に影響を及ぼす災害リスクは多様化、複合化しており、特にここ数年で台頭しているのが、気候変動に伴い激甚化、頻発化する風水害リスクである。そして社会経済活動における脆弱性と災害感応度の増加と相まって、風水害による被害も更に甚大さを増し、その被害の連鎖拡大の範囲も広がり、また復旧・復興までの時間軸も長期化している。
    特に中小企業の経営については、平時から人材不足や事業継承問題などを抱え、海外の廉価製品やサービスとの競合などにも晒されている状況では、防災対策やBCP(事業継続計画)に基づいた備えを行うことの優先順位は劣後しがちであり、BCP策定率もここ10年近く低迷したままである。その結果、災害に対する脆弱性が高まり、そこに外力としての激甚化・複合化した災害が襲い掛かり、その被害はサプライチェーンを経由して国内外の取引先にも波及するため、個別企業で対応できるレベルをはるかに超えてしまうような危機的状況になりつつあると考えられる。
    このような危機的状況が日常化する中、中小企業庁、そして経済団体他もこれまでの企業防災の考え方の枠組みを超え、企業経営そのもののレベルでの対応を各中小企業に開始してもらいやすい事業継続力強化の仕組みの提供を、新たな法制度の整備も含めて集中的に開始した。
    事業継続力強化の取組みは、自らの生業(なりわい)を改めて見つめなおすことから始まる。そして、迫りくるリスクや刻々と変化する被害状況に有限の経営資源で対峙するための知恵と工夫を絞り出し、自助の限界があるのであれば関連企業との連携を手配する。また、事業や取引形態の転換が有効と考えれば、そのタイミングを逃さない。このような「転禍為福(災い転じて福と為す)」を実現するためには、平時の変化への対応の柔軟性を積み上げ、最終的には大規模災害にも対応できる体制を日々の経営を通じて構築し続けなければならない。経営者は激
    甚災害時でも経営者としての誇り、勇気、そして覚悟をしっかりと持ち続けることが肝要である。

    Thailand, while having emerged as a progressively important production and logistics hub in Southeast Asia, is exposed to rapidly increasing disaster risk that arises from intensifying climate change. This project aims to improve the disaster resilience of Thailand's industrial agglomerates by implementing the Area Business Continuity Management (Area BCM) framework. Specifically, the following systems are established and operated to develop an information-sharing and decision-making mechanism that can be commonly used by stakeholders in major industrial parks: 1) a disaster risk monitoring/assessment system; 2) an information sharing system with establishing an analytical approach for Business Impact Analysis (BIA); and 3) an Area-BCM system. These functions are integrated into a standardized tool kit so as to ensure interoperability, complement the limitations of individual BCM frameworks, and enhance disaster resilience of the entire region. Furthermore, an attempt is made to rollout the Area-BCM framework to other ASEAN countries connected through supply chains and form a broad-area investment cycle as a means to address disaster risk.
