Abstract

Purpose. Development of a Unified Belarus-Russian Concept for managing resettlement and exclusion territories in terms of securing human protection in the aftermath of the Chernobyl NPP nuclear accident.

Methods. Radiation data collection and analysis; analysis of the existing database on the basic aspects related to securing the safety of living in contaminated areas; analysis of the existing and forecasted levels of radioactive contamination of bordering territories including residential areas, forests and agricultural lands; modelling radiation dispersion in case of wildfires in the areas of radioactive contamination.

Findings. Provisions have been developed in terms of three major directions of the Unified Strategy: health and daily life safety of the residents of Belarus and Russia who live in the areas neighbouring the exclusion and resettlement zones; sustainable socioeconomic development of the areas affected by radioactive contamination; interaction between Russia and Belarus in terms of emergency prevention, preparedness and response in the bordering territories with high levels of radioactive contamination.
