Regional Training Course on Flood Safety for Nuclear Installations

APFM took part in an Expert Meeting at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Headquarters in Vienna, Austria from 13 to 15 July 2016 to provide support in developing training modules on flood hazard assessment and protection of nuclear facilities against floods. Experts invited to the meeting – comprising WMO, Institut de radioprotection et de sûreté nucléaire (IRSN) and Istituto Universitario di Studi Superiori di Pavia (IUSS Pavia) – discussed the structure and contents of these modules and helped to disseminate available tools on non-nuclear expertise such as flood risk mapping and harmonizing methods for risk assessment. Based on this expert meeting, a regional training course on flood safety for nuclear installations was organized by IAEA in Pavia, Italy from 28 November-2 December 2016. An expert from WMO facilitated two sessions focusing on data issues and models, with very positive feedback from participants.
