The East-West Center is taking applications until March 12 for its Disaster Management and Resiliency Journalism Fellowship. Study tour destinations include Sendai and Tokyo. The program is from May 13-17. More about the fellowship here.
Given the recent Great East Japan Earthquake and the resulting tsunami and nuclear crisis, there has been a rethinking of how governments and communities prepare for and respond to disasters. Disaster management demands cooperation among both a wide variety of stakeholders within an affected country, as well as among the international community, to preserve and maintain the resiliency of political structures, economic markets and energy policies. In response, the East-West Center is proud to announce its new Disaster Management and Resiliency in the Asia Pacific Journalism Fellowship program.
