This study examines the impact of earthquakes in two agricultural areas in Japan and Colombia. Both regions are involved in commercial agricultural practice but with varying economic status and resources. The methods employed for the comparison are surveying and interviewing. The Survey reveals that, compared to Colombians, the Japanese care more about assets, and have more faith in their government, and believe their economy has been returned to a normal state. However, they both perceive threats to natural capital for agriculture to be their great concern despite Japanese state support for agriculture. And they both do not realize much of the mitigation improved since the earthquake. Our Interviews revealed remarkable differences between experiences to earthquake management and experience between developing and wealthy nations. Despite significant state support for agricultural recovery in Japan, people still consider natural disaster to be a great threat to their livelihood. It shows that government assistance maybe not enough and people are worried about what the next earthquake could bring. Poorer communities have less faith in government and feel they can do little to mitigate the impact, and they also focus on recovery rather than mitigation comparing to richer communities.
