Since its establishment, ADRC has been promoting Tsunami Disaster Reduction with a wide range of activities, such as damage surveys, research, conferences, workshops, and training courses together with Cabinet Office. Especially since World Tsunami Awareness Day was adopted by the UN General Assembly in December 2015, ADRC has dedicated itself to raising tsunami DRR awareness at every opportunity.
