The Fukushima nuclear disaster has many lessons to teach us, and it is our aim to convey this message to an international audience. A group of civil society groups have cooperated to create the '10 Lessons from Fukushima' booklet which was launched in March 2015 to coincide with the 3rd UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai – a forum attended by a range of specialists in disaster risk reduction.
This project has the support of the Japan CSO Coalition for 2015 WCDRR (JCC2015).
BookletWe have created a booklet entitled “10 Lessons from Fukushima: Reducing risk and protecting communities from disasters”. This booklet, which is based upon the experiences and testimony of local people, will be translated into around 15 languages, spreading the lessons of Fukushima around the world. ⇒ More
