  • Heterogeneity of Causal Effects of Designating Tsunami Inundation Zone on Land Price

    Chisato Kawai, Fuko Nakai, Eizo Hideshima

    Conference Proceedings of 2021 IEEE 10th Global Conference on Consumer Electronics (GCCE) ( IEEE )    139 - 140   2021.08  [Refereed]

    Research paper (international conference proceedings)   Multiple Authorship

    This study examines how potential tsunami inundation zoning affects land prices in Japanese coastal areas using propensity score matching and the difference-in- differences method. The results showed spatial heterogeneity in the estimated effects: a more considerable impact occurred in coastal areas or areas distant from central cities, while the impact did not appear in urban areas or tourist centers.

  • Analyzing Urban Intensification and Disaster Risk Reduction using the Optimal Land-Use Model

    Conference Proceedings of 2021 IEEE 10th Global Conference on Consumer Electronics (GCCE)     141 - 142   2021.08  [Refereed]

    Research paper (international conference proceedings)   Multiple Authorship

    This study developed an optimal land-use model composed of multicriteria: tsunami risk, infrastructure maintenance cost, traffic time with controlling population, land use, and commuting trips. The model was applied to a coastal area in Japan. The results, with various combinations of the control variables, showed that the larger the number of variables, the more concentrated residential areas became with fewer costs. The findings urge consensus around trade-offs between urban intensification and disaster risk reduction.

  • Analyzing the Impacts of Designating Potential Tsunami Inundation Zones on Population Change

    Fuko Nakai, Yu Nagamachi, Eizo Hideshima

    Conference Proceedings of 2021 IEEE 10th Global Conference on Consumer Electronics (GCCE) ( IEEE )    137 - 138   2021.08  [Refereed]

    Research paper (international conference proceedings)   Multiple Authorship

    The study examined the effects of potential tsunami inundation zoning on the population in Japanese coastal areas using propensity score matching and difference-in- differences method. The results indicated that large cities were less affected than rural areas; however, some exceptions were observed. Moreover, the elderly exhibited a tendency to leave the Level 2 (L2) zone; however, individuals of the younger generation, who usually relocate during different life events, stayed in the L2 zones. The findings can be used as a reference to plan suitable disaster mitigation strategies.

  • communities'Disaster Preparedness Promoted Evacuation: A Case Study of Nagano City Damaged by the Chikuma River Floods Caused by Typhoon Hagibis

    Fuko Nakai, Shinichiro Nakamura, Kensuke Takenouchi

    Journal of Japan Society of Civil Engineers, Ser. B1 (Hydraulic Engineering)   76 ( 1 ) 424 - 436   2021.02  [Refereed]

    Research paper (scientific journal)   Single Author

    This study examined the evacuation behavior of two communities in Nagano City; Naganuma and Toyono, Japan, during the typhoon Hagibis. Despite the width of the inundated area and significant building damage, there were only two victims in the area. We analyzed the relationship between (1) the numerical statement of the aggregated evacuation behavior, (2) social and hazard circumstances, and (3) social background, including the disaster preparedness formulated by the community. The research focused on "the minutia"of factors which have been revealed by previous researches, rather than "the existence or absence" of such factors. The analysis was based on newspaper articles, a post-interview survey conducted by Kansai Television Co. Ltd., the minutes of the flooded area's past flood control meetings, and community disaster management plans. The results showed that the main factor promoting evacuation action differed in the two communities. This difference lied in each community's disaster preparedness. Indeed, Naganuma had set a specific and socially agreed upon criterion for evacuation: a specific water level of the Chikuma River. Meanwhile, Toyono had experienced several inland flooding. On the other side, both communities had participated in the flood control meetings and formed organizations for voluntary disaster mitigation action and a common awareness of "what constitutes a dangerous situation" and "which information is important for the evacuation".

    地区防災計画ガイドラインでは、地域の特性や強みを反映した計画の重要性が強調されている。しかし、そうした指針を住民自ら実現していくことは容易ではなく、手法については多くの課題がある。本稿では、役場と住民、大学が協働で地区防災に取り組んでいる高知県黒潮町鞭地区の井戸整備の事例を紹介し、独自性のある取り組みがなぜ成立したのか、コミュニティとリーダーの性質に着目して考察する。

  • Evaluation of Evacuation Plan: Taking Account of the Uncertainty around Tsunamis and the Compliance of Evacuees

        E07   2017.02

    Research paper (research society, symposium materials, etc.)   Multiple Authorship

    Evacuation rules in community is sometimes collapsed because of the conditions of hazards (exogenous
    uncertainties) or social factors including decision making by individuals (endogenous uncertainty). This research tries to identify the performance elasticity of exogenous and endogenous uncertainty that each community rule has. The performance (i.e. the number of casualty) was assessed by an agent-based model (ABM). The research domain is Kuroshio, Kochi prefecture in Japan. As the result, the performance of rules has highly depended on whether people follow the rule or not. The result also gave us an insight into the importance of gaining community members' compliance.

  • Measuring Vulnerability of Tsunami Evacuation Rules Taking Account of Compliance of Evacuees

      55   CD-ROM(18-03)   2017

    Research paper (research society, symposium materials, etc.)   Multiple Authorship

    Evacuation rules in community are sometimes collapsed because of the conditions of social
    factors including decision making by individuals. This research tries to identify the fragility of evacuation rule that community rule has. The fragility is identified by the marginal external damage(i.e. the time required to move to the safe place) calculated by an agent-based model (ABM). We apply the methodology to a research domain, Kuroshio, Kochi prefecture in Japan.
