“Towards Mabi’s Recovery – Lessons One Year On” is an effort of a group of professionals and practitioners through direct field observations, interviews and document review after the 2018 West Japan flooding in Mabi, Kurashiki, in the Okayama prefecture of Japan. The report builds on findings from Church World Service Japan’s earlier "Six Months Since Western Japan Flood: Lessons From Mabi" report. It identifies some of the most critical lessons from Mabi’s flood response and recovery efforts, structured around the themes of People and Communities, the Natural Environment and Organization. The analysis of these themes leads to Ways Forward which are aligned with the four Priorities for Action of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) 2015-2030. It is hoped that this learning contributes not only to Mabi's ongoing recovery, but is also used to inform other disaster and specifically flood responses globally.
