Statement to the Forty-seventh Regular Session of the IAEA General Conference 2003. Vienna, 15 September 2003. IAEA General Conference

Abstract

The past year has been a time of significant challenges and achievements for the IAEA. In the area of verification, the Agency has been at the centre of attention and has demonstrated again its ability to perform objective and credible safeguards. In the area of safety and security, there are overall improvements but much remains to be done. In the technology area, the Agency is contributing to sustainable development through its technical co-operation (TC) programme - with the benefits of nuclear applications increasingly recognized - but more partnerships are needed to optimize the use of these valuable technologies. And while nuclear power continues to hold great potential as a clean source of energy, it remains in a holding position due to a number of associated concerns. In more detail some of the Agency activities in each of the following areas are reviewed: Nuclear Power Technology (Current Status and Outlook, Evolutionary and Innovative Approaches, Waste and Fuel Cycle Concerns, Building Capacity in Member States, Nuclear Knowledge Management, International Co-operation on the Nuclear Fuel Cycle); Non-Power Nuclear Applications (Human Health, Water Resources Management, Plant Mutation and Breeding, Sterile Insect Technique, De-mining); the Agency Laboratories; Co-ordinated Research Projects; Nuclear Safety and Security (Safety  More>>
