Warm Welcome to distinguished Delegates from all around the world, and honored local guests. It is my honor and privilege to give this welcome message for the 1st International Conference on Natural Hazards and Disaster Management held at Osaka Japan.
Natural Hazards and Disaster induced by various causes, including climate change and environmental problem, are global matters which must be dealt under the co-operation and joint projects on climate change impact assessment and adaptation strategies between academic scholars and field technicians all over the world.
I hope this 1st International Conference on Natural Hazards and Disaster Management will be the beginning of an international collaboration to adapt and mitigate to climate change and environmental problem, which will be the key in preventing natural hazards and disasters.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee and Keynote speaker and in my own behalf I wish everyone a successful and prosperous participation at the 1st International Conference on Natural Hazards and Disaster Management and a pleasant stay in Osaka, Japan.
We look forward to meeting you at Osaka, Japan!!!

Coastal regions in Japan face the greatest financial risk from natural disasters because of their vulnerable locations and increasing cargo volumes, a risk-management firm. Japan leads with a potential $2.3 billion cost to insurers from a one-in-500-year event because of the threat from earthquakes and windstorms, Risk Management Systems, a risk-modeling firm. China, is second at $2 billion, the company said, citing the possibility of wind-related losses and the dangers involving petroleum products and Risk Management Systems ,satellite images and analysis of cargo types and storage methods helped modernize risk assessments.
