  • In order to establish world leading research bases in Japan, the 21st Century COE Program was proposed in 2002 by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science, Sports and Technology. The selection of the COE in the “Engineering Field” was made in the last year, and twenty-three research groups have been awarded.

  • 2. IAWE: promotes international co-operationamong scientists, engineers and otherprofessionals for advancement of knowledgein the broad field of wind engineering.Pressing needs of concerted cooperative actions of academicassociations, international organizations and local communities.Establish linkages and coordinate variouscommunities to serve as inter-agencycoordinators with a charter to work withinternational organizations involvingagencies of the UN and involved NGOs,and to embolden their activities that help toserve as a bridge between policy makersand agencies responsible for actuallycarrying out the DRR at the localcommunity level.IG-WRDRR is a thematic group under theumbrella of UN/ISDR.IAWE, WMO, TPU, IFRC, ICHARM,UNESCAP, UN-Habitat, UNU, ADRC,BDPC, SEEDS Asia, ADRRN ……Goals and Objective OrganizationHP of IG-WRDRR:http://www.iawe.org/WRDRR/index.html

Future Goals andFuture Goals andContribution to post-HFAContribution to post-HFA to implement the Hyogo Framework for Action and post-HFAin the area of wind-related disaster risk reduction; to establish a database/warehouse of the latest information/technologies relevant to wind-related effects and theirmitigation; to facilitate technology transfer that attends to the needs oflocal communities exposed to disasters around the world; to provide assistance to international organizations in thepreparation of guidelines to manage the impact of wind-relateddisasters including evacuation, recovery and reconstruction;WRDRR is a big long-term challenge toour society !
  • 6. Future Goals andFuture Goals andContribution to post-HFAContribution to post-HFA to establish an international consensus for extreme windsbased on damage relevant to different construction practices; to establish international guidelines to prepare for wind-related disaster reduction activities; to harmonize wind-loading codes and standards includingenvironmental specifications; to encourage more involvement to a global EngineeringVirtual Organization (EVO) for WR DRR; and to hold international workshops/conferences on WR DRRirregularly.
