  1. Speculation on the Socio-economic Recovery of the Fukushima Region: Referring to the Reconstruction Projects of Hiroshima and Kobe Cities, Tsunekazu Toda, 2nd Technical Meeting on Science, Technology, and Society Perspectives on Nuclear Science, Radiation, and Himan Health: The Voew from Asia, 2015/11/10, With Invitation, International Atomic Energy Agency-Nagasaki University, Nagasaki University, On August 6 in 1945, an atomic bomb was dropped in the heart of Hiroshima and the entire city was destroyed and burnt down [I say this Hiroshima Disaster]. Fifty years later, on January 17 in 1995, the Great Hanshin Earthquake attacked the Kobe area, whose scale of earthquake had never happened before in Japan [I say this Kobe Disaster]. Then, 16 years later, on March 11 in 2011, the Great East Japan Earthquake happened, which caused Tsunami and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster [I say this Fukushima Disaster]. In Japan, in the period of 50 years from 1945 [Hiroshima Disaster] to 1995 [Kobe Disaster], the number of population and the economic growth rate of GDP had been increasing. However, after 1995, both rates have slowed and becoming decreasing. The socio-economical situation of Japan changed entirely after around the time of 1995. In 2008, the National Spatial Strategy had been formulated by the National Government, in which the following three changes were indicated as drastic transformations in the socio-economic environment: (i)Advent of a decreasing and rapidly aging population, (ii)Globalization and economic growth in East Asia, and (iii)Advances in information and communication technology. This national plan also indicated various strategic goals, including (a)Development of Sustainable Local Communities, (b)Development of Local Communities based on “New Public,” and (c)Creation of a Resilient Nation resistant to Disaster, These goals are considered to be set based on the experiences of socio-economical recovery of Kobe Disasters and some on them had been actually adopted and applied for the recovery from Fukushima Disaster. In my presentation the reconstruction projects and the socio-economical recovery of Hiroshima will be reviewed and it will be clarified that the recovery process had been greatly influenced by the environment of the times. The entirely same recovery schemes and reconstruction projects as those adopted for Hiroshima Disaster as well as Kobe Disaster could not been applied directly for the recovery from Fukushima Disaster. However, some lessons to be learnt from the socio-economical recovery of Hiroshima and Kobe disasters could become a good reference in order to examine how to promote socio-economical recovery of Fukushima region.
