Abstract
Development can create vulnerability if disaster risk reduction measures are not properly imbedded into it. Nuclear technology and radioactive waste is an apt example of industrial advancement with its disastrous impact on our environment. Like all other countries, Pakistan is also facing the problem of nuclear waste management. This paper explains development of nuclear fuel cycle, what all type of waste is produced and why this waste is dangerous to living being. It also highlights various techniques adopted by different nations and how Pakistan is dealing with such waste. Highpoint of the paper is the analyses part where numerous questions have been raised for further research in this area. The article mostly relies upon independent and international sources as enough material and open access to the programme being secret is not available.
