Summary

Alliance for Humanitarian Architecture is collaborating with our alliance partners to reconstruct the northeastern region of Japan, where supertyphoon Hagibis hit on October 12.

Over 820 landslides were found, with 87,000 homes affected, and over 2,300 people displaced from their homes.

Challenge

Supertyphoon hitting Eastern Japan on the evening of October 12 throughout the evening until noon the next day. With record-breaking rainfall, many rivers across the affected regions overflooded disaster took the lives of over 90. Over 2,300 homes and businesses flooded losing all of their business equipment and supplies. The damages incurred are estimated at over 1.2billion USD. The government is offering several financial aids, but many are insufficient to cover the damage to rebuilding.

Solution

From this typhoon, a number of economic avenues were devastated. Especially in the rural areas affected, these financial lifelines are the essential core that allows communities to become self-reliant again. Through our carefully selected projects, we will be helping a number of local shops and businesses essential to the community to recover, open, create jobs, and collectively provide a financial future for their affected communities.

Long-Term Impact

The integration of construction and architectural design services to support local business is key to the long-term recovery of the region. Pending the selected project community, the long-term impact on one project could help the entire community. For example, helping one shop restart the business, could hire few people in the community, provide daily needs of the community, hence shortening the traveling time and expense, indirectly providing time and funds to focus on getting back up.
