Programme summary

Programme Concerns

Measures related to other hazardous waste and/or marine management capacity building may be considered during the concept note phase.

The Ministry of Environment of Lithuania, the Ministry of Energy of Lithuania and the Ministry of Interior of Lithuania shall be Programme Partners and shall be actively involved in and effectively contribute to the development and implementation of the programme. They shall, inter alia, be actively involved in policy issues and in facilitating bilateral cooperation.

The possibility of establishment of an early warning system on nuclear safety of Lithuania, due to risks coming from nuclear power plants in the neighbouring countries, shall be explored in the concept note phase.

The programme shall include, inter alia, measures related to the decommissioning of the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant and measures related to secure waste management. A pre-defined project on decommissioning of the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant and related activities, with the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority as donor project partner, shall be explored in the concept note phase.

Bilateral Ambitions

€ 75 000 shall be allocated to the programme from the fund for bilateral relations. This does not prevent the Joint Committee for Bilateral Funds from allocating additional funds to the programme.
