Disaster Risk Reduction Education is a core pillar for reducing vulnerability and increasing capacity for dealing with disasters. Many international students coming to Japan have little or no prior DRRE exposure in their home countries. In order to empower international students to deal adequately with disasters, targeted DRRE effort is needed in higher education. This paper reports on a newly established DRRE course at Nagoya University implemented in collaboration with Tohoku University, looking at some of the challenges and discussing available opportunities that could be leveraged in promoting adoption and delivery of DRRE to international students in Japanese institutions of higher learning.
