IRDR Special Report on UK-Japan Workshop on DRR and Lessons From the Great East Japan EQ

22 February 2013

In October 2012, the IRDR coordinated the UK delegation for a UK-Japan Joint workshop on Disaster Risk Reduction – Learning from the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake hosted by the British Embassy in Tokyo. In addition to participating in the workshop, delegates visited areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami. The IRDR has just published a special report on this workshop and site visits, edited by IRDR lecturer Dr Joanna Faure Walker, which can be downloaded from our special reports publications page.
