Partnership for Recovery and a Stronger Future: Standing with Japan After 3-11

In April 2011, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), in partnership with Keidanren, formed a task force of prominent Americans to examine ways that the United States and Japan could partner on recovery and reconstruction following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. The task force organized working groups on disaster preparedness and recovery, economic recovery, energy strategy, health and recovery, lessons for the alliance, and strengthening civil society linkages. Stacey White managed the working group on disaster preparedness and recovery and drafted Chapter 1 of the final report of the joint task force.
