520    This book focuses on building regional resilience by 
       comprehensively improving regional assets. Regional 
       vulnerability depends on the availability of regional 
       assets for the population, as well as the population's 
       ability to access those assets. Such assets include the 
       environment, population size, community, and human capital,
       as well as traditional physical infrastructure. 
       Identifying and improving these regional assets, which 
       provide resource flows to help cope with regional 
       disruptions-natural disasters, economic crises, or 
       demographic changes- serves to mitigate vulnerability and 
       build resiliency. The book pursues an interdisciplinary 
       approach to investigating regional resilience, bringing 
       together welfare and environmental economics, public 
       administration, risk and disaster management, policy 
       studies, development studies, and landscape architecture. 
       Up-to-date case studies are provided, including recovery 
       from the Great East Japan Earthquake in Japan, regional 
       development for depopulation areas, and urban policy for 
       smart cities. These studies reflect and share the latest 
       findings on key issues, policymaking and implementation 
       processes, and implications for evaluation methodologies-
       all of which are indispensable to the building of 
       resilient regions. This book is highly recommended for 
       researchers and practitioners seeking a fresh, 
       interdisciplinary approach to regional and urban 
       development. It provides a valuable reference guide to 
       building resiliency and mitigating vulnerability, both of 
       which are imperative to achieving sustainable regions
