The document introduces the case study about reconstruction from Great East Japan Earthquake in Odaka District, Minamisoma City, Fukushima Prefecture. (Soft Measures, such as Evacuation Drills, etc.)
This article focuses on one aspect of this -- the efforts that are being made to bring about deeper transformative changes that aim to make the region in and around Fukushima both more sustainable and resilient.
This document presents a framework for mental health and psychosocial support in radiological and nuclear emergencies, the first of its kind to bring together existing knowledge at the intersection of mental health and radiation protection. It is intended for officials and specialists involved in radiation emergency planning and risk management as well as MHPSS experts working in health emergencies.
The village/town-university collaboration provides the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction with a model for developing a multi-disciplinary and multi-hazard approach to public DRR policy during the recovery phase of a nuclear accident.

Eight years after the start of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster and two years after the Japanese government lifted evacuation orders in areas of Namie and Iitate, radiation levels remain too high for the safe return of thousands of Japanese citizen

This report contains the findings of a study commissioned by agencies of the United Nations to obtain credible information on the conditions in which people affected by the Chernobyl accident are living fifteen years after the explosion, and to make recommendations as to how their needs can best be addressed in the light of this information.
This report was prepared by the Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission for the National Diet of Japan. It investigates the circumstances and causes of the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident in 2011.
This document discusses how almost six years after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, despite the overall good recovery progress, some areas have lagged behind and 134,000 evacuees continue to live in displacement. Prolonged and protracted displacement has had profound and disproportionate impacts on the more vulnerable members of society, particularly older people. 
The report summarises the Fukushima Global Communication Programme's research in three key areas that are crucial for understanding and addressing the impacts of the 2011 disasters: (i) disaster risk reduction and lessons from and for international policy, (ii) displacement and livelihoods, and (iii) risk communication and nuclear accidents.
