Post Tohoku tsunami period as a policy window

Policy windows are an important element of LIRNEasia’s work style. More than supply push we believe in demand pull. Does not give us optimal control over our time, but we live to work, not work to live.

The period following the Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami was clearly a media window, even if we can debate whether it was actually a policy window. LIRNEasia, which does not have ongoing research on disaster early warning was inundated by requests for interviews and articles.

Did a push in New Delhi too. But that was much harder. New Delhi media have not experienced tsunamis directly and they have trouble focusing on them, with one or two honorable exceptions.
