France is developing its PNGMDR – one of these wonderful long French acronyms, standing for “Plan National de Gestion des Matières et Déchets Radioactifs” or National Plan for the Management of Radioactive Materials and Wastes. On 17 April 2019, at 7 in the evening, a nation-wide public debate on this plan was kicked off in the Maison de la Mutualité in Paris. This was the first meeting of six months of debates touring around the country. It is organised by the National Commission for Public Debate (CNDP) and the Special Committee (CPDP), state appointed bodies in charge of this public participation marathon. After Paris, the Special Committee will organize general public meetings in four major regional cities (Lille, Rennes, Bordeaux and Strasbourg), plus another sixteen more specialised debates in all corners of the country.
