Regional participation

(Video in German only)

The aim behind regional participation in the Sectoral Plan for Deep Geological Repositories is to take account of regional interests at all stages of the search for suitable sites. The involved communes, organised interest groups and the local population can participate in the sectoral plan via specially created bodies and thus communicate their demands, concerns and needs. Regional participation is organized with so called regional conferences which were established in all six siting regions in 2011. During stage 2, for example, regional conferences were able to state where they felt the surface facilities should be constructed. In stage 3 they will discuss measures aimed at supporting the desired development of their region.
