[HDS15-04] Spatial Analysis of Social Vulnerability to large-scale flood: a case study on the Katsushika Ward, Tokyo
Keywords:GIS, large-scale flood, Social Vulnerability
In this study, we refer to the MOVE framework (a disaster vulnerability assessment framework) and analyze social vulnerability from three perspectives: exposure to a flood, susceptibility, and resilience. We subsequently develop an index system to evaluate the social vulnerability using 14 indicators. Spatial distribution of the social vulnerability of floods in the Katsushika Ward, Tokyo, is revealed based on the collected data using the information entropy method and geographic information system (GIS).
