In February, CIGI released its Action Plan and Overview on nuclear energy and global governance to 2030. The Action Plan and Overview are derived from a larger four-part report that focuses on the issues of safety, security and nonproliferation. The report is the culmination of three-and-a-half years of research in the Nuclear Energy Futures.
A key recommendation from the study is to engage the industry more deeply on nuclear governance issues. One such endeavour is being undertaken by the Australian-based International Commission on Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament (ICNND). The agency has created an electronic survey of nuclear industry, which is a follow-up to the ICNND meeting with the representatives of the global nuclear industry on June 22, 2009 in Moscow, where a preliminary discussion took place about the scope for closer collaboration between governments and industry to manage the growing global interest in nuclear energy.
It was agreed that an industry survey would be a useful way to gauge industry views to help shape the ICNND’s recommendations for prospects for closer collaboration between government and industry.
