What is FAIRDO?

FAIRDO conducts action research aiming to sufficiently understand the current status and issues at decontamination sites, drawing on international experience and knowledge, and making practical recommendations for effective decontamination. There are three research components: 1) effective governance on decontamination; 2) development of decontamination plans that reflect local conditions; and 3) communication that promotes collaboration with local residents.
