Abstract

Frequent and unprecedented mass disasters have occurred across the globe. in the past, natural disasters such as floods and droughts were the norm, but now diverse calamities such as heat waves, heavy snows, strong winds, and rising sea levels occur frequently. disasters resulting from climate change involve uncertainties about when they will occur. therefore, response measures should be prepared in advance. in addition, it is also difficult to expect which places will experience disasters due to climate change. disasters may occur in vulnerable places in addition to already affected areas. therefore, preventive measures against the consequences of climate change should be developed in potentially affected areas such as areas vulnerable to heat waves, regions with high impermeability, areas with high density populations, etc. (The rest omitted)
