The Centre for Environmental Creation (CEC) is established by Fukushima Prefecture with the support of the Japanese government, as a central organization to conduct research, provide information and education, with the aim of recovering and re-creating the environment that has been contaminated with radioactive materials.
The Japanese government has been conducting the following activities in accordance with the Act on Special Measures for Fukushima Reconstruction and Revitalization (Act No. 25 of March 2012) and the Basic Guideline for Fukushima Reconstruction and Revitalization (Cabinet Decision of July 2012)(hereinafter called “Basic Guidelines”): research into the movement of radioactive materials in the environment and the effect of these materials on the ecosystem, development of radioactivity decontamination technologies, and giving advice for radioactivity decontamination. Those activities of the national government should be well coordinated with those of the Prefecture in the CEC to serve the goal of re-creating an environment in which people will live safely.
Those activities of the national government will be implemented by Japan Atomic Energy Agency (hereinafter called “JAEA”) and The National Institute for Environmental Studies (hereinafter called “NIES”) as participants in CEC. It will be very important for these organizations and Fukushima Prefecture to closely cooperate with one another in CEC in conducting such research and other activities.
