jica projects for earthquake disaster mitigation in developing countries
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
    • 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 & others
jica project on the reduction of seismic risk for buildings and structures in romania
JICA Project on the Reduction of Seismic Risk for Buildings and Structures in Romania

Romania has been receiving damage from earthquakes, such as the 1977 destructive earthquake of M7.5 occurred in the Vrancea district (Total toll 1,578), and working on the reduction of seismic risk through Japanese support.

(1) Project Purpose

  • Improvement and dissemination of technology to reduce building collapse in case of great earthquakes are achieved.

(2) Romanian Counterpart

  • National Center for Seismic Risk Reduction,
  • Ministry of Transports, Constructions and Tourism (MTCT)

(3) Japanese Counterparts

  • Building Research Institute
  • National Institute for Land and Infrastructure Management

(Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport)

(4) Project Period

  • Five Years from October 2002 to September 2007

JICA Project on the Reduction of Seismic Risk for Buildings and Structures in Romania

(5) Project Outputs

1. Effective and low-cost retrofit techniques are developed by Center and acquired by structural engineers.

2. Regulations/ codes concerning seismic issues for both new buildings and existing ones are improved by MTCT and Center.

3. Post- earthquake evaluation techniques of the damaged buildings are developed by Center and acquired by structural engineers.

4. Disaster prevention education for the citizens is improved by Center.

Dissemination

  • Seminars to citizens and engineers
  • Published matters on disaster mitigation
  • Questionnaire survey

Strong Motion Observation

・7 Boreholes in Bucharest (Red)

(Surface, 30m and 80-150m in depth)

・4 Buildings in Bucharest (Yellow)

・6 Free Fields outside of Bucharest

Japanese advanced technologies on earthquake disaster prevention is being transferred through providing equipment and dispatching experts.
