10 Lessons from Fukushima: Reducing risks and protecting communities from nuclear disasters

While it is very important to share the experiences of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, people on the receiving end of such advice cannot take appropriate action unless they understand how to anticipate and prevent the actual disaster at the root of all these experiences, along with measures for how to mitigate the damage of nuclear accidents or disasters should they actually occur.
