Mountain law is still in its infancy. Most countries have not yet adopted mountain-specific laws, preferring to focus on the protection and development of mountains through existing sectoral legislation. This publication looks at the development of mountain legislation. The first part broadly describes the main elements of mountain-specific legal texts, first in the international sphere, then at the domestic level. The second part contains six short case studies from countries where legislation on mountains has been passed or proposed.

High-level nuclear waste -- one of the nation's most hazardous substances -- is accumulating at 80 sites in 35 states. The waste is supposed to be disposed of in a geologic repository at Yucca Mountain, about 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas, NV. However, the repository is more than a decade behind schedule, and the nuclear waste generally remains at the commercial nuclear reactor sites and DoE sites where it was generated. This report examines the key attributes, challenges, and costs of the Yucca Mountain repository and the two principal alternatives to a repository that nuclear waste manage
