Remediation of uranium tailings site at Chkalovsk (Tajikistan)

A multi-donor effort to remediate legacy Uranium tailings sites in Central Asia, especially in the Fergana valley, includes addressing the priority sites identified by a joint UNDP/IAEA study in 2009, including Chkalovsk in Tajikistan. The affected area has been identified and blocked off from the public so that remediation efforts can begin.
