"Emergency management is a critical area for Japan, as seen by recent disasters like the tsunami in March 2011 and the earthquake near Fukushima this past December," said Dr. Fukami, President of IIGR and one of Japan's leading emergency management scientists. "We feel privileged to join forces with a globally recognized organization, IAEM, to build a community focused on improving Japan's disaster response."

IIGR will lead the development and recruitment for the IAEM Japan chapter. Together, IIGR and IAEM will bridge international efforts to improve resilience through lessons learned from disasters across the globe. The Japan chapter will meet to share best practices and publish reports that will be available to the emergency management community at large.

"With thousands of members across the globe, we recognize the importance of communities uniting to address the specific emergency management needs of their regions," said Elizabeth B. Armstrong, CEO of IAEM. "IIGR has a strong connection to the global Japanese community, and we are confident their leadership can bring visibility to the important emergency management issues in Japan."
