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 outcomes for this project include: Increased knowledge and management capacity of member states regarding the use of nuclear technology in areas such as water resources, radioisotope production and radiation technology, nuclear science, safety, power and fuel cycles, human health, food and agriculture, and environment; and Greater use of nuclear technology techniques by member states and increased cooperation among them as a result of training, fellowships and scientific visits, participation in expert and lecture assignments, national meetings, and participation in Fund activities both at headquarters and in the field.
