Assessment of the Potential Benefits of Regional, Multinational Cooperation

MCM has studied the safety, security and economic benefits of regional cooperation between countries in radioactive waste management. We have also analysed the societal and political challenges faced when this cooperation extends to shared storage or disposal facilities.  Our work has covered regional initiatives in Europe, in the Arab regions and also in Asia.  MCM staff members have led relevant European Commission projects, authored and co-authored a series of IAEA advisory documents, and also performed country-specific studies on multinational cooperation for various national programmes including Italy, South Korea, Switzerland, and the UAE.
