|Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI), Kyoto University
In addition to the responsibilities as professor, Disaster Prevention Research Institute, Kyoto University, Japan, Hirokazu Tatano serves as Vice-President of International Society of Integrated Disaster Risk Management (IDRiM Society) since 2010, and the Secretary-General of Global Alliance of Disaster Research Institutes (GADRI), since 2015. He has done pioneering research on economic consequence analysis with major focus on economic resilience to natural disasters at the levels of individual business, market, and regional economy. Another research focus is methodologies for integrated disaster risk management and governance. Through these academic activities, he wishes to contribute to establishing "implementation science" as a key area of science for disaster risk reduction.
