    Risk perception and attitudes towards radiation risks and nuclear activities Risk perception is an important element in policy development and public decision-making. It remains one of the most important challenges in nuclear risk governance, as proven by the lessons learnt from past events. The late health effects of low-dose rate radiation exposure are still a serious public concern in the Fukushima area even four years after the accident at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FNPP). To clarify the factors associated with residents’ risk perception of radiation exposure and consequent health effects, we conducted a survey among residents of Kawauchi village in May and June.
