The presentation by members of the Earthquake Engineering Field Investigation Team (EEFIT) will outline key lessons following 2 years of recovery after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent tsunami and nuclear incident, based on Japan mission findings in June 2013 and June 2011. The consequences of the 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami made this event the most expensive natural disaster recorded in the world to date. The observations of the team are relevant to the engineering community as well as those involved in coastal protection structures, tsunami hazard and risk assessment, the nuclear industry, post-disaster housing, urban planning, disaster
mitigation, response and recovery, the insurance industry and catastrophe modelling.
The Earthquake Engineering Field Investigation Team (EEFIT) is a team of practicing and academic built environment professionals, who visit the sites of major disasters to bring back prevalent lessons for the engineering and disaster management community worldwide.
