Experts of the State Agency of Ukraine on Exclusion Zone Management for the implementation of the Radioactive Waste Management Strategy have developed a draft Concept of the National Targeted Environmental Program for RW Management.

«Development of the draft Concept is the first step towards the creation of a comprehensive system of radioactive waste management, as well as the implementation of one of the basic principles of radioactive waste management - non-shifting of financial burden to future generations», - said Serhii Kalashnyk.

After the approval of the Strategy, a new National Targeted Environmental Program for Radioactive Waste Management will be developed.

In particular, the Program will establish a system that should comprehensively solve the problem in the field of radioactive waste management, complete the creation and ensure the effective functioning of Ukraine's integrated radioactive waste management system, as well as create conditions for safe and cost-effective radioactive waste management.

Currently, the draft Concept of the National Targeted Environmental Program for RW Management is at the stage of consideration and coordination with interested central executive bodies.
