After Fukushima: risk and resilience to disasters in Japan

16 December 2013

UCL Lunch Hour Public Lecture 19th  November 2013

The Japanese islands face an extraordinary range of natural hazards – earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunami, lahars and tropical cyclones. In the wake of the 2011 tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disaster, Prof Sammonds looks at the impact of disasters, recovery and the building of resilience to natural hazards in Japan.


Professor Peter Sammonds, Director, UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction.
