Source(s):  Tohoku University
United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS)

This document contains the proceedings of the scientific workshop where lessons learned following the Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami were explored and shared. The proceedings summarize the collective efforts by scholars who have examined the Great East Japan Earthquake from various angles.This document seeks to document landmarks of the disaster before they are erased by intensified reconstruction efforts that will make it more difficult to find the disaster's footprints over time. Although studies can be found primarily in Japanese, English-language studies are difficult to find.

The workshop titled "Great east Japan earthquake 11 March 2011: lessons learned and research questions" was organized by the United Nations University’s Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS), together with the University of Tohoku, and paved the way for the development of additional joint activities between the two institutes through scientific events and the development of capacity on addressing human security and vulnerabilities in disaster areas.
