As large-scale floods caused by climate change have occurred recently in areas throughout Japan, there is an urgent need for the formulation and implementation of adaptation measures. Since 2013 we have been studying large-scale flood countermeasures based on workshops involving local cooperation in Kagawa Prefecture's Chusan area (the Doki River basin). When large-scale flood damage occurs, a response as a unified community is required from the viewpoint of regional continuity, and consideration of a DCP (District Continuity Plan) is necessary to maintain regional functions. The government is collaborating with residents under the aim of formulating a DCP for the Doki River ahead of other areas in Japan.
In this research, we organized the examination processes carried out in the Doki River up until now and in addition to extracting their features, examined the possibility of improving the community's disaster preparedness through implementation of the action plan that had been created.
