Indonesia, one of the world’s most seismically active countries, is pushing ahead with plans to build the country’s first nuclear power plant. It has plans for four nuclear power plants by 2024. With growing electricity shortages, Indonesia is unlikely to halt its plan to build its first nuclear power plant.
In regard to the plan, Arif Fiyanto, a climate and energy campaigner for Southeast Asia at Greenpeace, says that Indonesia is more prone to disaster than Japan. Nuclear power plants are inherently dangerous if we build them in a country like Indonesia, which is located on the Ring of Fire.
