Tohoku Earthquake

    Contributing to Response, Relief, Rehabilitation and Research in the aftermath of Tohoku District -off Pacific Ocean Earthquake

    During the past few days after the massive earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear reactor disasters, we have received a number of mails offering condolence, support and requests for having an opportunity to support relief/recovery efforts as well as to be involved in follow up research.
    Many have had close ties to Japan, either having studied, worked or benefited from the generous Japanese overseas development support in the past. At UNU-ISP we are trying to find effective ways to channel this good will into productive outcomes.
