Abstract

The objectives of COWAM in Practice (CIP) are:
- to contribute to enabling European societies to make actual progress in the governance of radioactive waste management (RWM) while contributing to increasing societal awareness of and accountability for radioactive waste management in Europe in order to reach practicable, accountable and sustainable decisions
- to follow up and analyse five innovative national processes on RWM on the basis of COWAM-2 results with a view to support stakeholders, particularly local communities, directly in their engagement with their particular RWM programme(s) - and to capture the learning from that experience
- to develop best practices and guidance for the application (implementation and improvement) of new inclusive governance of RWM approaches in the EU-25, including benchmarking on practicable and sustainable decision making processes recognized as fair and equitable by the stakeholders on the short, medium and long term.
