A Strategic Master Plan published last week is set to help accelerate remediation efforts at former uranium mines in Central Asia. With the necessary funding,
the highest-priority sites can be remediated in just a few years.
The new plan, developed under the leadership of the IAEA in cooperation with experts from the region and international organizations, provides a framework
for carrying out remediation activities in a timely, coordinated, cost-effective and sustainable manner. Building on European Union-funded environmental
impact assessments and feasibility studies and studies completed by Rosatom, the plan defines hotspots and remediation priorities in the region. It also
provides risk assessment and cost estimates.
