ISTC/STCU Symposium and Seminar:

The Experience and Technology of Russia, Ukraine and Other Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) Countries on Remediation and Restoration of Environments

On 3-4 February 2012, the Japanese government hosted a two-day symposium and seminar on The Experience and Technology of Russia, Ukraine and Other CIS Countries on Remediation and Restoration of Environments. Organised by the International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) and the Science and Technology Center in Ukraine (STCU), this meeting was an opportunity for experts from zones most affected by the Chernobyl accident (Ukraine, Russia and Belarus) to share best practices in managing contaminated land. The meeting was co-organised by the Japanese government, the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Participants discussed ISTC and STCU land decontamination projects relevant to conditions following the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident and stakeholder engagement activities based on proposals made by the NEA.
