Abstract

In an analysis and evaluation of the formulation process of the “Kobe City Recovery Plan” following the 1995 Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, we classified its process objectively into 10 individual elements based on project management framework by applying the Johari-Window concepts. The lessons reviewed in this paper can thus be referenced in making future recovery planning following large-scale disasters in the future.
