报告题目: The 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake: Disaster and Technological Risk Management
Lessons learned from the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, the tsunami it triggered, and the ensuing severe nuclear accident are presented. The assessment is carried out in terms of natural disaster and technological risk management. The “triple disaster” of earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown caused untold human suffering and significant economic losses. The impacts of the earthquake and tsunami are assessed and tsunami evacuation strategies are discussed. Impacts on Japanese nuclear power plants are summarized and the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station disaster is examined in detail. Nuclear power regulatory regimes and disaster preparedness are investigated.
