This publication is a translation of the South Korea case studies section in the first edition of the World Nuclear Waste Report published in 2019. It attempts to spark a debate in South Korea on the complexities of dealing with nuclear waste. For the last decade since the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, many civil organisations, experts and citizens have denounced the South Korean government's continued dependence on, and management, and development of nuclear power plants but to no avail.
The Plastic Atlas Asia Edition has the hard facts, data and figures to prove that the story of plastic that industry is telling us is a myth. We need urgent and drastic reductions in plastic production and consumption and regulation at the local, national, regional and global level that tackle plastic pollution at the source.
