In times of disasters – man made or natural – people turn to the internet for information and subsequently for help.
The ABC crisis information page is an open project dedicated to the needs of Austrians and the Austrian businesses in Japan. Every member of the ABC is invited and encouraged to contribute to the collection of information below. Bilingual information is particularly welcome; however not a requisite.
As part of a more open approach, the crisis information – unlike the forum – will be accessible to the public.
The Executive Office of the ABC will structure and edit the information with the aim to maintain a useful resource for all ABC members. Please be reminded though that the content provided in linked websites is beyond our control.
