Implementing Public Participation Approaches in Radioactive Waste Disposal - Deliverable 5.3

Lessons learnt from implementing participatory processes

The core aim of the IPPA project is the establishment of arenas where stakeholders can join together to increase their understanding of the issues involved in radioactive waste disposal and of their respective views. The project is not limited to national programmes but includes also the multi-national context, as issues such as Environmental Impact Assessment and the Espoo Convention, the regional repository option and implementation of the Aarhus Convention will be examined. The project also investigates how negotiations on compensation and added value can be implemented at the local level.
