USGS publishes a new blueprint that can help make subduction zone areas more resilient

The USGS has just published a new blueprint for advancing science and
resilience related to subduction zone hazards, entitled Reducing Risk
Where Tectonic Plates Collide – A Plan to Advance Subduction Zone
Science. This new Plan describes how the USGS may leverage scientific
and technologic developments, address its stakeholder needs, and
maximize capabilities through partnerships – with the overall goal
of reducing the risks posed by subduction zone events. The Plan is
featured on the USGS main webpage, and a quick summary of the Plan is
provided in an accompanying Fact Sheet (written for a general
audience).
