    <p>The purpose of this study is to present a framework for consultation for the materialization of regional cooperation in times of disaster, using a case study of an effort to connect tertiary emergency transportation roads designated by municipalities at the boundaries of cities and towns. As a result, the study process was organized into three stages: "sharing of issues," "agreement on the direction of the project," and "individual consultation. Since the planning body is the basic municipality, it is necessary to carefully coordinate with the related departments, and it was clarified that it is effective to hold individual discussions between the two related cities.</p>

    <p>In this study, the supply routes of waterworks in the Nishi-mikawa region of Aichi Prefecture were graphed and applied to ongoing discussions with higher-level administrators to consider collaboration in the event of a disaster. As a result, concrete proposals for cooperation were presented, and it was shown that the following three points were useful in the materialization of regional cooperation: (1) continuity of themes, (2) dialogue with upper management principal, and (3) visualization of cooperation targets through graphing efforts. In addition, with a view to applying the graph to the consideration of more effective collaboration measures, a person in charge of disaster prevention at a local government indicated that the graph could serve as a basic document for collaboration.</p>

    In this study, we developed a real-time disaster information collection system with a combination of smartphones and Internet GIS. Through an investigation of the Kumamoto Earthquake and disaster drills in many regions, we proved the effectiveness of this system. However, these experimentation also revealed various issues in implementation this information collection system to a regional community as a collaboration between the local government and private corporations.

    <p>The success and failure of initial responses to disaster is extremely important to mitigate the damages. A disaster-information-sharing is essential to choose and carry out appropriate responses when time and resources are severely limited. So, it is necessary to develop an information-collecting-and-sharing system and a social system where information is mutually exchanged.</p><p>This study developed a system for local communities to collaborate in collecting and sharing information. The system can realize the continuity between normal and disaster, interactivity of information, immediacy, and cross-sectoral operation. Also, the system was utilized in a variety of cases where situations and subjects were different, and the result was analyzed. As the result, knowledge was obtained on the requirements and the necessary frameworks for local communities to utilize the information-sharing system. Other systems similar to this study have been developed, and the advancement of technology is expected to spread more sophisticated systems in the future. This study conducted a practice with technologies which can be spread at this time and organized knowledge to implement the same type of system in the community, which are the features of this study.</p>

    <p>This case study proposes a new approach to community-based disaster mitigation in which regional issues are resolved and the features of local areas are concurrently addressed. This paper proposes a method of multi-scale community-based disaster-mitigation planning based on the results of workshops on regional community-based disaster mitigation conducted by the authors and targeted at city planning professionals, and describes the results obtained from a case study targeting the greater Nagoya region. Several issues were indicated, including the absence of institutional mechanisms to support the relocation of residential functions and the need for such mechanisms to support the adoption of active disaster-mitigation measures, density reduction, and withdrawal of industry from high-risk areas.</p>

    The rate of urbanization in Laos has increased significantly since the country began its transition to a market economy in 1986. Although urbanization in developing countries has been examined extensively in the literature, very few researchers have focused on Laos. Our main aim here was to examine the effectiveness of utilizing the master plan as a management tool to regulate urban growth in Vientiane, the capital city of Laos. We used a mixed-methods approach to address the research objective. First, we examined the population changes since 1985. Next, land-use and land-cover changes were detected by analyzing the satellite images from three different time periods. Then, we analyzed the city's recently approved master plan to determine whether it can regulate urban growth. Finally, to investigate the socio-economic and institutional issues and better understand the reasons for rapid land-use and land-cover changes, we interviewed several key figures from the departments related to urban management and a number of residents living in the peri-urban area. Between 1995 and 2011, the urban population in the study area increased from 337,000 to 780,000. In the same time period, the built-up area increased from approximately 154km2 to more than 206km2. The total area of the forests decreased from approximately 2354km2 to approximately 1353km2. The results indicate that there is an urgent need for improvements in the regulatory and management aspects and that the master plan should be revised to provide a more realistic account of the existing situation.

  15. The Impact of Urbanization on Land Use and the Changing Role of Forests in Vientiane

    This paper investigates urbanization in Vientiane, the Laotian capital city, and its vicinity. The intent is to address the relationship between urbanization and land use, especially focusing on the changing role of suburban forest. In the Vientiane suburbs, forests still supply many items to villagers: firewood, charcoal materials, wild vegetables, mushrooms, insects, small animals and others. However, when off-farm work increases and commuting to factories is prevalent among villagers, the time to collect and hunt forestry products declines. Foods except for rice are purchased from stores in cash and firewood and charcoal are replaced by propane gas. In the near future, forests may become unnecessary for villagers from an economic aspect. What meaning do suburban forests have? For one, they have cultural and environmental meanings such as the securing of better landscapes and biodiversity, but their more important role is to act as a barrier to prevent urban sprawl.
