Wakayama Sabo Research and Education Institute(IWSRE)

 Wakayama prefecture has high potential risk of sediment disasters due to geomorphological and geological factor and climate condition. The Wakayama prefectural government has been implementing various countermeasures in order to achieve zero death tolls by sediment disasters.

 However, many human losses were caused by typhoon TALAS in 2011 and large-scale sediment disasters occurred in the southern part of the prefecture.

 Taking this catastrophe, the prefectural government established the Wakayama Sabo Research and Education Institute (IWSRE), in the Nachikatsu-ura town where was severely damaged by debris flow disaster events in 2011.

 The duties of the IWSRE are to do research on the Sabo technology, to share information on the results of the research and to hand down disaster remembrance to posterity.
