The Environment, Energy and Nuclear Safety Conference is co-organized by the Singapore Institute of International Affairs and the Center for Strategic and International Studies. The Regional Dialogue is a half day event which engages NGOs and Think Tanks in Indonesiaand other key countries in ASEAN and Asiato increase awareness of the issues concerning nuclear energy and safety in ASEAN. The regional dialogue would be set within the context of the Environment, Climate Change and Energy.
We hope that the Dialogue would emphasize the need for the highest standards of safety with nuclear energy, the necessity at the national level for sound administration, consultation, transparency and non-corruption and the need for a regional regime for consultation, transparency and inspection to enhance safety.
We also hope that by setting the Dialogue in the broader context of the environment, energy and climate change that the need for nuclear energy can be brought into question and the possibilities of alternate energy resources and energy efficiencies can be emphasized.
