The Fukushima nuclear disaster forced a global re-think about the safety of nuclear power. Where once there seemed to be consensus about a nuclear renaissance, now there is diversity of views about the future of the industry, and some states have even begun to transition away from nuclear power. Can nuclear power programs be managed safely and securely? With are the implications if states decide that safety issues cannot be managed? What are the lessons that nuclear operators should take from Fukushima?

U.S. Deputy Secretary of Energy Daniel Poneman, Tatsujiro Suzuki from the Japan Atomic Energy Commission, and the World Association of Nuclear Operators' George Felgate discuss lessons learned from the Fukushima disaster and its implications on nuclear safety.
