Change management strategies and programmes to ensure a smooth transition towards future projects.
As South Africa includes nuclear in the energy mix, there will be greater reliance and dependence on NRWDI to research and develop radioactive waste management and disposal technologies suitable for the needs of the country. For this to unfold, it would be necessary to, not only to leverage on existing partnerships, but also establish new partnerships and collaborations with various organisations nationally, regionally and internationally.
Embarking on new technologies and coming up with solutions for the radioactive waste will require buy-in from all our stakeholders. Communication and public awareness is key in order to build trust and confidence in the Institute. Therefore, mechanisms will be put in place to strengthen public understanding of safe and secure management and disposal of radioactive waste.
