Dealing with Interests, Values and Knowledge in Managing Risk

Workshop Proceedings, Brussels, Belgium 18-21 November 2003

These workshop proceedings deal with the local partnership methodology employed in Belgium in order to develop an integrated proposal to the national government to construct and operate a disposal facility for low-level radioactive waste that is adapted to local conditions. The partnerships were formed among representatives of local organisations in affected communities and representatives of the Belgian national radioactive waste management agency. Insights are provided into a unique - and so far very successful - governance approach to dealing with interests, values and knowledge in managing risk.



Closing Remarks

Nuclear Energy Agency

First of all, I would like to thank you for being here the last few days. I hope it has been an interesting experience, both for FSC delegates and for the Belgian stakeholders. From what I heard, you have been working very hard. So, I try not to be too long, because you all deserve time off to digest and reflect on the information you received during this workshop.
