    Presentation Transcript
    1. BRI Strategy of Technical Cooperation for Developing CountriesXIX International Symposium CISMIDLatest Advances on Earthquake Engineeringand Management to the Disasters Reductionin honor of Professor Yuji IshiyamaLima, Peru on May 30, 2005Tatsuo NarafuSenior Coordinator for International Cooperation Building Research Institute Japan (BRI)

    2. Content of Presentation • Activities of Technical Cooperation for Developing Countries in BRI -Training Courses on Japanese ODA Programs -BRI/JICA Projects for Developing Countries -R&D Activities of IISEE -Activities for Dissemination • Further Development in Recent Years and Activities for Future -Betterment/Expansion of Training Courses -IISEE net (information net work on inter-net) -International Networking through IT Technologies -R&D on Comprehensive approach to conventional housing in DCs

    3. Training Courses on Japanese ODA Programs organized by International Institute of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering (IISEE), BRI • Course on Seismology, Earthquake Engineering and Disaster Mitigation (Regular Course, since1962) -Lectures Seismology Earthquake Engineering Earthquake Disaster Prevention Strategies -Duration about one year • Global Seismological Observation Course (since 1995) -Lectures Seismological Observation Analysis of Seismic Data Techniques to Distinguish nuclear tests Outline of CTBT and International MS -Duration about two month • Individual Course -incentive studies on urgent topics of each countries • Total Number of Participants until Jan. 2005 1,227 from 92 countries 98 from Peru, the largest among all the countries

    4. Participants of IISEE courses from all over the world

    5. BRI/JICA Projects for Earthquake Disaster Mitigation in Developing Countries • Objective -to develop human resources and physical basis in each countries -to contribute to mitigate disasters through elaboration of seismic codes or other ways -to empower the CP organization to be a national/regional center of earthquake disasters mitigation activities • Scope of Activities -instrumentation of seismometers and strong motion SM -structural testing -dissemination of information through trainings, seminars, and others • Programs offered by Japanese Government -dispatch of Japanese experts -training of CP personnel in Japan -donation of facilities and equipments for monitoring, testing, R&D, dissemination and others

    6. Examples of BRI/JICA projects

    7. Outline of Japan-Peru Earthquake and Disaster Mitigation Research Center Project • Counterpart Organization National University of Engineering, Peru (Universidad Nacional de Ingenieria Peru (UNI)) • Duration of Project June 1986 – June 1991

    8. R&D Activities of IISEE(1)( International Institute of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering) • Studies on Earthquakes and Structure of the Earth -Velocity structure in Mantle -Fault Planes of large earthquakes -Rupture processes of large earthquakes -Simulation of Seismic waves

    9. R&D Activities of IISEE(2)( International Institute of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering) • Strong Motion Monitoring by the Network of BRI -seventy seven stations throughout Japan -simultaneous monitoring at upper part, basement and ground of the buildings • Development of Damages Estimation System -Damage estimation immediately after earthquakes -Damage estimation for preparedness

    10. Activities for Dissemination(1) • Seminars/Workshops -Symposium in commemoration of 40th anniversary of IISEE training course, Nov. 2003 -Panel Exhibition in UN World Conference on Disaster Reduction in Kobe (WCDR) in Jan. 2005 -Public Demonstration of Improvised Shaking Table Test in collaboration with UNCRDin UN WCDR in Jan. 2005

    11. Activities for Dissemination(2) • Dissemination through IT tools -BRI website in English -Information network of earthquake disaster mitigation on inter-net (IISEE Net, started in May, 2002) I

    12. Further Development in Recent Years and activities for future • Betterment/Expansion of IISEE Training Courses • IISEE Net (Information network on intern-net) • International networking through IT tools • R&D on a comprehensive approach to conventional housing in DCs

    13. Further Development in Recent Years and for futureBetterment/Expansion of IISEE Training Course • Contribution and cooperation of outside organizations -United Nations Center for Regional Development (UNCRD) -Universities • Conferment of Master’s Degree (under preparation) Graduates of IISEE regular course will be eligible for Mater’s degree of a unversity • Expansion of scope of studies -earthquake disaster prevention strategies (starting in 2004/2005 course) disaster mitigation policy hazard assessment risk assessment -tsunami disasters (under preparation)

    14. Further Development in Recent Years and for futureIISEE Net (Information network on intern-net) • Aim -to support researchers and engineers in developing countries in their R&D activities • Contents of the web site following items of information of 80 countries are available seismic monitoring network historical report on seismic damages seismic codes micro- zonation data • Future development -uploading of reports on research and surveys on EQs -listing of related websites for information searching

    15. Information exchange through Internet Individual characteristics of developing nations Technological support Database Seismic damage Seismic network Seismic design code Microzonation techniques Seismicity and damage Importance of design code Seismicity and damage Importance of design code Personal network through IISEE

    16. Further Development in Recent Years and for futureInternational networking through IT tools • Aim -to strengthen relation between researchers/research institutes and share information and knowledge throughout the world with IT technologies • The first step forward <experimental teleoconference> -Title of the conference Technical Committee on Romania Earthquake Disaster Mitigation Planning on March 22, 2005 -between Bucharest, Romania and Tokyo, Japan -on Global Distance Learning Network (GDLN) offered by World Bank

    17. Further Development in Recent Years and for futureR&D on a Comprehensive approach to conventional housing in DCs • Aim -to contribute to mitigate earthquake disasters through dissemination of appropriate technologies • We are focusing on: -feasible and affordable technologies for communities/people -strategies for dissemination of technologies -diffusion and sustainable growing of technologies in communities along with economical effects such as job opportunities

    18. Further Development in Recent Years and for futureR&D on a Comprehensive approach to conventional housing in DCs • Outline of R&D (tentative) duration: about five years case study in several countries: (tentative: Peru, Indonesia, Nepal, Turkey) • Activities in 2005 feasibility study in partnership with National Institute for Land and Infrastructure Management (NILIM), United Nations Center for Regional Development (UNCRD), universities and research institutes • Chief advisor Dr. Yuji Ishiyama

    19. BRI tries to strengthen partnership with researchers, engineers and people in practice in the world and to contribute to safer built environmentThank you
