This strategic plan for RWMC was adopted at the RWMC meeting of March 2011. It expands and details the planning given in the Strategic Plan of the Nuclear Energy Agency for 2011-2016 that was approved in April 2010 by the NEA Steering Committee. The RWMC Strategic Plan takes into account the work already performed by the RWMC and the expected developments and challenges in the fields of radioactive waste management and decommissioning over the next 5-10 years. The purpose of the strategic plan is to identify the role of the RWMC with respect to the different challenges that member countries face and to describe the areas where RWMC plans to focus its work in future years. The detailed planning of work will be developed and updated continuously in the biennial Programme of Work.
