Pacific Forum CSIS (Honolulu, HI) is a one-of-a-kind American think tank, respected in Asia for understanding and listening to Asian concerns and in Washington for its careful representation to Asians of the nuances of U.S. policy positions and decisions. A grant to Pacific Forum would support a creative project to bring U.S. experts on nuclear, Korea, and Japan policies to Korea and Japan and to conduct a week-long series of publicized town hall forums on the U.S. relationship with its allies and the changing nature of security relationships in North Asia. This effort would simultaneously (1) educate Washington policymakers about the nature of the dialogues in Japan and South Korea surrounding acquiring nuclear weapons; (2) reassure the publics of Japan and South Korea that the U.S. will protect them and that acquiring nuclear weapons of their own would only reduce their own security; and (3) ensure that policymakers in Japan and South Korea know how to respond to the concerns of their own publics. Pacific Forum will incorporate a range of qualitative and quantitiave evaluation methods into its project plans to help assess whether the project reaches its goals. (New, $180,000/1; 90% of project budget)

Grants to this Grantee
for creating a climate-positive space for the U.S. and China to advance global net-zero transition  
This grant is to support the Center for Strategic and International Studies to rebuild the architecture for U.S.-China cooperation on transnational issues, particularly among non-state actors. It aims to reframe narratives around U.S.-China cooperation on shared global challenges, including health care, food security, and climate mitigation and adaptation. (Substrategy: China National Policy).
for the Energy Security and Climate Change Program  
This grant supports the Energy Security and Climate Change Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. The program provides important leadership on energy security and climate change by consistently providing high-quality public education events, sharing strategic energy insights, and advancing policy solutions through research, reports, and education of policymakers. The center serves an important role, with a global audience. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)
for a project to explore the United States’ approach to technical cooperation agreements  
This grant would support the Center for Strategic and International Studies' research and analysis on nuclear cooperation agreements and nuclear fuel cycle decisions. It would focus on two areas: renewal of the US-Korea nuclear cooperation agreement that must be completed by 2012 and developing a broader strategy for the United States government on upcoming discussions with states on their fuel cycles. In the next five years, approximately 13 U.S. nuclear cooperation agreements will need to be renegotiated and another four new agreements are currently under negotiation. CSIS' project on nuclear cooperation agreements will encourage U.S. officials to consider the wider ramifications of endorsement of pyroprocessing in the Korea 123 agreement, directly or indirectly, and facilitate coordination of policy across the government on these agreements.
