The review was carried out pursuant to paragraph 20 of the Guiding Principles and General Operating Rules to Govern the Provision of Technical Assistance by the Agency. 2. The use of the resources placed at the Agency's disposal, in the form of voluntary contributions, gifts in kind, UNDP(SF) and UNDP(TA) funds, for the provision of technical assistance is reviewed in this document; data on UNDP(SF) assistance in respect of projects for which the IAEA was the executing agent have been incorporated in the statistical tables and figures for the first time. This has been done to establish a broader basis for comparison of the data that will be included in the report to be submitted one year hence, in which special reference will be made to the technical assistance provided by the Agency in 1972, which will reflect the full integration of the Special Fund and Technical Assistance components of UNDP, In addition, information is given with regard to the UNDP(SF) projects for which the Agency served as sub-contractor in 1971 in Annex III. 3. The three principal elements of the technical assistance provided are expert services, equipment and fellowships. The main objectives of the assistance are to promote the transfer of skills and knowledge relating to the peaceful uses of atomic energy, to support the efforts made by recipient countries to carry out their atomic energy activities more efficiently, and to ensure that the knowledge acquired can continue to be applied after Agency projects have been completed. The achievement of the latter objective, however, depends largely on the ability of Governments to make adequate facilities available and to recruit and retain the requisite number of qualified staff. 4. In 1971, 73 countries received technical assistance in one form or another from the Agency, as shown, Approximately two thirds of all assistance provided related to the application of isotopes and radiation in agriculture, nuclear engineering and technology, nuclear physics and the subjects covered by the classification heading 'Prospecting, mining and processing of nuclear materials'. 5. The assistance, including assistance in kind, was provided through the services of 345 experts, lecturers and visiting professors, the supply of equipment to a value of about $1 489 000, and 739 fellowship awards for individual study, scientific visits, two study tours and other short-term training projects. 6. The resources allocated for carrying out the Agency's 1971 technical assistance programme amounted to $5 630 000, whereas the total value of the technical assistance actually provided in 1971 was about $4 895 000. This includes payments against 1971 and prior years' obligations, as well as assistance in kind, and represents an increase of $900 000 or 23% over the sum of $3 486 000 provided in 1970, but does not include the unliquidated obligations and assistance in kind outstanding at the end of the year. As in earlier reports on the provision of technical assistance by the Agency, details are given below regarding activities in which developing countries have shown special interest in 1971, followed by information concerning other developments relating to technical assistance.}
