How can the human dimensions of disaster impacts be more accurately captured and represented in the analysis, modeling and simulation of disasters?

By enhancing the following:- Digital penetration with inclusivity (breaking the rural urban divide, age group divide)- Citizen science in disaster risk reduction - Big data analysis

What type of data and supporting research infrastructure would be necessary to enable novel, transdisciplinary approaches to answering these and other human-centered disaster questions?

More than the physical infrastructure, it needs social and policy infrastructures, which encourages digital penetration in wider areas. While the Generation Z and Millennials are more data friendly, and digitally literate, it is required to focus on the vulnerable groups for the human centered disaster data.

In what ways can US-Japan collaborations advance these questions in new and important ways?

- Governance cooperation (open governance is the key to address this)- Technology cooperation with emerging technology application - Education and awareness level cooperation through sharing and co-learning from best practices as well as from past failures
