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.
