Resilience in the Face of Catastrophe: Rikuzentakata's Ongoing Recovery from Japan's 3.11 Triple Disaster
Thursday, September 12, 2013, 4:00 PM
Weil Town Hall, Belfer Building (B-L-1), Harvard Kennedy School, Cambridge, MA

Join us for a presentation by Kiyoshi Murakami, Goodwill Ambassador of Rikuzentakata, Japan, who will speak about the progress his town has made in recovering from the March 11, 2011 tsunami, which caused extensive devastation along the country's Tohoku coast. Rikuzentakata was particularly hard-hit, and in this talk, Mr. Murakami will explore the extensive effort the community has made to rebuild – and discuss where recovery stands today.

Sponsored by the Program on Crisis Leadership, Harvard Kennedy School; the Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies, Harvard University; and the Program on U.S.-Japan Relations, Weatherhead Center for International Affairs.
