ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to derive policy implications and recommendations for long-term recovery plan (LTRP) based on the analysis of the planning system, contents, and characteristics of the disaster recovery plan in Japan and US. While experiencing several large-scale disasters, these two countries have perceived LTRP as essential. They amended the legal systems and management guidelines for building up their LTRPs incorporating regional long-term comprehensive plans, which could facilitate sustainable regional development. Their LTRPs are characterized as holistic, comprehensive, and action-oriented. In addition, they required pre-disaster recovery implementation for the post-disaster long-term recovery plan, which enabled their recovery process immediate and efficient. The policy implications for natural disaster recovery plan in Korea from these two countries are summarized as follows: (1) expanding the concept of recovery and the scope of recovery plan, (2) making a comprehensive and action-oriented LTRP reflecting various other sectors, and (3) ensuring sustainability through pre-disaster planning.
