The project set out to prepare an investment to manage and prepare for risks stemming from a nuclear power plant located in Belarus. The power plant is positioned very close to Lithuanian/European Union borders.
The project will build on a national capability gap assessment as well as consultations with national and international stakeholders and experts to contribute to the country’s efforts to enhance its preparedness and response to possible nuclear accidents. A capability gap assessment, conducted in 2019, involved asking all relevant national and local institutions to fill in a questionnaire. The project then used the information to draft an analysis which was then used to prepare an investment proposal. During its preparation, consultations with national stakeholders were carried out, a workshop with national and international partners and experts was organised and a conference to present the project’s deliverables was held in Lithuania. Finally, study visits to Finland and Japan took place to exchange experiences and good practices in the area of nuclear and radiological emergency preparedness and response.
