Experience feedback from the IRSN's involvement in the FARMING post-accidental program

This paper is intended to present the experience feedback of the IRSN's involvement in the reflection on the management of a nuclear crisis. It sums up some results of the French FARMING working group, corresponding to the mobilization of a wide range of Agricultural Technical Institutes and to the appraisal of a compendium of agricultural countermeasures for the rehabilitation of rural contaminated territories in post accidental situations. Indeed, in France, since a few years, this problem has been almost exclusively considered by radiation protection experts, with no involvement of the other concerned actors. But according to the weight of the agro industrial sector in this country and to the problems related to the management of contaminated food in post accidental situations, the cooperation between radiation protection experts and agro industrial stakeholders appeared more and more necessary. Indeed, above all, farmers and other local actors would take a significant part to the rehabilitation actions from the short term to long term of a nuclear crisis period and then share the responsibilities of the crisis management. The working group has therefore opened new debates at the national level and valuable results have been obtained from the meetings at technical and strategic levels.
