The Committee is comprised of the Japan NGO Center for International Cooperation (JANIC), Fukushima Beacon for Global Citizens Network(FUKUDEN, Peace Boat, and CWS Japan to educate  the world community on the impact of the March 11, 2015 (ongoing) nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. 10 lessons was released March 14, 2015 at the U.N. World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction held in Sendai. The Fukushima Booklet Publishing Committee observes:

Rather than a publication for learning about events that happened in the past, we see this booklet in terms of providing guidelines for dealing with issues in the present, and as such it should be used to prevent disasters that could easily happen in the future. We aim to translate this booklet into as many languages as possible, and to have it read throughout countries that have nuclear plants or in countries where there are plans afoot to build nuclear plants.

The 72 page booklet is available in Japanese, English, Chinese, and Korean.
