Japan: 10 Lessons from Fukushima: Reducing risks and protecting communities from nuclear disasters
The Fukushima Booklet Publication Committee, an independent group of Japanese NGO representatives, has issued a publication titled “10 Lessons from Fukushima: Reducing risks and protecting communities from nuclear disasters”. In the afterword to the publication, the Committee states: “In this booklet, we have extracted 10 lessons that must be learned from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and also presented the international laws and international standards that are at our disposal. None of these are memories of the past. The disaster in Fukushima, four years after the accident, is still very much ongoing, with the situation continuing to change.” The publication is available in multiple languages, including English, Japanese, French, Chinese (traditional characters), and Korean, and includes references to human rights standards and reports that can be used by local communities and NGOs.
