General Description of the Research Project

Contribute to building a resilient regional community against disasters by visualization of disaster risks and introduction of Area-BCM
The 2011 floods in Thailand resulted in inundation of overseas production bases, disrupted distribution system, and suspended production due to inability of employees to commute, etc., causing a significant impact on Japanese industries such as production adjustment. This project focuses on Thailand’s key role in the global supply chain, develops an Area-BCM tool that visualizes the impact of disaster risks on industry by region, and implements the system in industrial parks and surrounding areas to build an operational framework to help build a disaster-resilient regional community.

Make Area-BCM an international standard to achieve sustainable social and economic development in Asia region
We will visualize the impact of disaster risks on industry using a scientific method, and ensure business continuity through industry, government and academia collaboration including the regional community. In the future, we aim to spread Area-BCM to ASEAN nations by making it an international standard and contribute to the reduction of global supply chain disruption risk and realization of sustainable social and economic development in the Asia region.
