What's Next

The tsunami did not differentiate between large and small businesses. In Ishinomaki alone, we do know that a total of 1,749 SMEs were affected, resulting in the loss of 472,000 million yen in profits and the loss of 18,000 jobs. Of these, 6,024 jobs lost were in the construction sector.

津波は無差別に様々な企業を影響しました。石巻だけでも1,749の中小企業が影響を受けたことにより、4,720億円の利益、そして18,000の職(そのうち6,024の職は建設業界のもの)が失われました。

MakiBiz Helps SMEs

Recovery from disaster requires a holistic approach. Disaster survivors require access to a wide range of services, including counseling, education, training, construction and design. The integration of construction services with business support services is key to the long-term economic recovery of the region. We opened our first regional office in Japan - "MakiBiz," which seeks to help small businesses in the Tohoku region rebuild and recover. MakiBiz provides design, construction, and business development referral services to the community of Ishinomaki in support of their efforts to build back better.

復興には総体的なアプローチが必要です。被災者の方々はカウンセリングから教育、職業トレーニング、設計から建設まで様々なものを必要としています。長期的、永続的な復興には建築とビジネスサポートが鍵になります。当団体の日本初の現地オフィス「まきビズ」では、事業主や起業家に対する設計、建設、事業開発仲介サービスなどを通じ、被災地の中小企業の復興支援をすることにより地域経済を活性化し雇用創出につなげ、より良い石巻そして東北の復興を目指します。

About

Architecture for Humanity is collaborating with local design and construction professionals to reconstruct the northern Japan region where the earthquake and tsunami hit on March 11, 2011. Any community would have been devastated by such a disaster – Japan was better prepared than most. However, it is in the event of disaster that communities need assistance in rebuilding. Through our network of local design and construction professionals we are providing technical expertise to help rebuild.

現在、アーキテクチャー・フォー・ヒューマニティは、日本の建築家や建設関係者と共に、2011年3月11日に起こった東日本大震災により被災した地域の復興のための活動をしています。日本は世界の諸地域と比べ災害対策が整っていたとはいえ、今回の災害は、被災地はもちろんのこと、世界全体に想像を超える衝撃を与えました。今でも被災した多くのコミュニティが復興への支援を求めています。
