Iwate Prefecture Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Reconstruction Plan - Basic Reconstruction Plan
Iwate Prefecture developed the “Basic Policy for the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Reconstruction Efforts” on April 11, one month after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.
The Plan consists of three basic principles: ensuring safety, rebuilding lives, and regenerating industries. The Plan also includes basic approaches and steps towards reconstruction, from immediate issues to aspects of community reconstruction, such as building safe and secure disaster-resistant cities and regions, ensuring employment and the maintenance of residential environments so that affected residents can quickly return to their daily lives, and regenerating the fishing industry, a key industry in Iwate. The Plan takes as its core values, ensuring humane living conditions, education, and jobs for survivors, guaranteeing the right of every individual to the pursuit of happiness, and inheriting the hopes and dreams the victims had for their hometowns. The reconstruction plan is to be a catalyst for the affected regions, starting with coastal areas, to take on a central role in Iwate’s future in order to achieve reconstruction together with independent organizations.
