Webinar Description

Destination Management: Disaster Prevention and Community Resiliency

Natural resource management is essential for the sustainability of livelihoods. To live in harmony with their natural and cultural resources, local communities build social capital and traditional know-how to manage their environments. This webinar focuses on the current situation of forests in Japan and Australia with an emphasis on risk and disaster management. Yakihata is a traditional way of burning grass in the Japanese Satoyama mountains that has been practiced for many years all over the country and is similar to fuel reduction burning systems in Australia. In the case of Japan, the Yakihata practice is not continued in many places due to depopulation in rural areas; this has resulted in increasing fire risk. In the case of Australia, the lifestyle of rural settlements and a very dry climate in the summer complicate the control of bushfire in forests. The webinar discusses ways to support local initiatives to build collaboration and know-how transfer on disaster prevention and hence creating safer destinations for nature-based tourism.

デスティネーションマネジメント 防災及びコミュニティレジリエンシー

自然資源の管理は、生活を維持するために不可欠な作業です。地域コミュニティは、自然と共生し、環境を管理することで、社会資本と伝統的な知識を築いています。本ウェビナーでは、日本とオーストラリアの森林の現状について、リスクと災害管理に重点を置いて議論します。焼畑は日本の里山で古くから行われてきた伝統的な草焼きであり、オーストラリアのフューエルリダクションバーニングシステム(火災を制御するための焼畑)と類似しています。日本の場合、農村部の過疎化と高齢化により、各地で焼畑が行われなくなり、その結果、火災リスクが高まっています。また、オーストラリアの場合、農村部の生活様式や夏場の非常に乾燥した気候が、森林(ブッシュ)火災の制御を複雑にしています。本ウェビナーでは、火災の季節にネイチャーベースドツーリズムのための防災やより安全な観光地を確立するための協力体制や知識の伝達を構築するために、地域の取り組みを支援する方法について議論します。
