Description and results


This grant represents Canada's institutional support to the Technical Cooperation Program of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). IAEA's mandate is to promote the safe, secure and peaceful use of nuclear science and technology. The goal of the TCP is to strengthen the ability of member states to use nuclear technology to achieve their national development priorities, such as agriculture, human health and economic growth. The TCP focuses on capacity building through fellowships and training courses, and the provision of experts and equipment. It also promotes the exchange of information on key regional issues, such as the role of nuclear power as a source of energy or the monitoring and control of atmospheric pollution. Canada's support to the IAEA contributes to the use of nuclear science and technology, the development and improvement of global nuclear safety standards related to human health and the environment, and to verify that nuclear material is used only for peaceful purposes.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcome for this project is strengthened ability of member states to use nuclear technology to contribute to the sustainable achievement of their national development priorities.

Results achieved

Results achieved by the Technical Fund of the International Atomic Energy Agency with the support of CIDA and other international donors in 2011 include:16 Country Programme Frameworks and 119 Revised Supplementary Agreements signed between the Fund and member states; and a total of 123 member states benefited from nuclear technology expertise in the areas of: water resources; radioisotope production and radiation technology; nuclear science, safety, power, and fuel cycle; human health; capacity development and program support; food and agriculture; and environment. In addition, 1,397 individuals benefitted from fellowships and scientific visits. The Fund also trained 3,051 individuals through 205 training courses, while 3,319 people participated in expert and lecturer assignments, and an additional 4,634 individuals participated in national expert meetings and project activities. The participation rate of women in technical cooperation activities ranged from 17%- 34%. Overall 3,562 women from all member states participated in these activities. Women comprised 30% of participants in training courses and 25% of technical assistance project counterparts.
