The legacy of > 800 million tonnes of mining and
processing waste (54% radioactive) located in
vulnerable areas (seismic, flooding, landslides) has
many dimensions


Degraded environments


Abandoned sites


Health and socio
-
economic impacts on local populations


Potential for cross border impacts


Potential for acute and chronic impact


Limited information exchange inside countries and in
region

Background to the Project



The legacy recognised by national
governements


High Level International Forum convened in
Geneva on 29
th

June 2009 delegations from
Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan


Joint declaration proposing a regional approach
to solving issues of environment and population
hazard related to dangerous radioactive wastes


ENVSEC project established

Need for regional knowledge on international
standards


Need for capacity in impact assessment and
remediation design development and evaluation


Need to address disaster risk management


Need for legal and regulatory infrastructure


Need for early involvement of non

ENVSEC
organizations e.g. IAEA
