    The Fukushima Global Communications (FGC) Programme is a UNU-IAS research and dissemination initiative implemented with the financial support of the Government of Japan. The FGC Programme adopts the human security approach to analyse the consequences of the March 2011 “triple disaster” comprising the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami, and the nuclear accident in Fukushima. The programme disseminates lessons learned from these devastating experiences from Japan to the international community, while also bringing relevant international expertise to Japan. It has three main components: (i) creating networks and fostering collaboration between Japanese and international experts, (ii) compiling information and undertaking research, and (iii) communicating information and sharing findings with the international community.
