Studying the methods, techniques, and current conditions of earthquake prevention


The working group chaired by Major General Ariunbuyan.G, the chief of the NEMA, is conducting experimental research in Japan. They’re learning the earthquake prevention methods, techniques, and the current state of earthquake resilience of buildings.

In Japan, earthquake resistance of buildings is categorized into two periods: before and after 1981. In other words, pre-1981 buildings shouldn’t suffer any damage during mid-size earthquakes and post-1982 buildings shouldn’t collapse during large earthquakes. In 1995, the Act on Promotion of Seismic Retrofitting of Buildings was put into force and revised in 2006. As of today, 94 percent of public buildings and 91 percent of private houses that are susceptible to earthquakes are retrofitted.  By 2030, they are working towards the completion of retrofitting buildings and making them 100 percent earthquake resistant.
