The IAEA International Conference on Radioactive Waste Management: Solutions for a Sustainable Future brought together experts from Member States to share experiences in the management of radioactive waste, with the aim of increasing the visibility of progress, good practice, and effective solutions. The sustainable application of nuclear technologies for the benefit of humanity, in cancer therapy, generating low-carbon electricity, improving crop yields and many other applications is fully connected with the responsible management of waste. It is only through the effective, safe and secure implementation of radioactive waste management solutions that Member States can continue to benefit from nuclear technologies and nuclear energy production, and the papers contained within these proceedings will help promote the sharing of good practices and experiences and thereby to a more sustainable future.
