Technical Cooperation Report for 2004. Report by the Director General; Informe de Cooperacion Tecnica para 2004. Informe del Director General

Abstract

The Technical Cooperation Report for 2004 highlights activities and achievements of the technical cooperation programme for the past year. During 2004, the Secretariat finalized the technical cooperation programme for the 2005-2006 biennium, which was approved by the Board of Governors in November 2004. A revised project appraisal process was carried out for the 2005-2006 programme, which yielded additional information regarding government commitment, national capabilities and project performance indicators and outcomes. Included in the 2005-2006 biennium is a strengthened programme for upgrading radiation protection infrastructure. The Secretariat used the experience of the past ten years, as well as conclusions from evaluations, to create a programme that would build upon the successes and lessons learned to provide the safe use of nuclear technology with well-regulated infrastructures. Activities carried out in 2004 built upon previous achievements through national and regional projects in many thematic areas. The programme continued to reinforce the capacity for cancer diagnosis and therapy by providing training and expertise and supporting the procurement of equipment. Consistent support for surveillance techniques using nuclear technology is helping to fight trans-boundary animal diseases, and is leading to countries becoming rinderpest-free. The Secretariat continued to provide expertise and support to assist with the repatriation  More>>

During 2004, the Secretariat finalized the technical cooperation programme for the 2005-2006 biennium, which was approved by the Board of Governors in November 2004. A revised project appraisal process was carried out for the 2005-2006 programme, which yielded additional information regarding government commitment, national capabilities and project performance indicators and outcomes. Included in the 2005-2006 biennium is a strengthened programme for upgrading radiation protection infrastructure. The Secretariat used the experience of the past ten years, as well as conclusions from evaluations, to create a programme that would build upon the successes and lessons learned to provide the safe use of nuclear technology with well-regulated infrastructures. Activities carried out in 2004 built upon previous achievements through national and regional projects in many thematic areas. The programme continued to reinforce the capacity for cancer diagnosis and therapy by providing training and expertise and supporting the procurement of equipment. Consistent support for surveillance techniques using nuclear technology is helping to fight trans-boundary animal diseases, and is leading to countries becoming rinderpest-free. The Secretariat continued to provide expertise and support to assist with the repatriation of highly enriched uranium reactor fuel to the country of origin. The development of partnerships with other United Nations organizations, as well as non-governmental organizations, continues to be of great importance to the technical cooperation programme. In 2004, for example, a memorandum of understanding was signed with the Regional Office for Africa (AFRO) of the World Health Organization (WHO) to support the improvement of health conditions and to raise standards of health in the region. Extrabudgetary resources reached more than $10 million for the second year in a row. This provided support to 17% of the approved footnote-a/ programme for 2004. In addition, receipt in 2004 of $8.1 million against earlier target years allowed the Secretariat to reinstate, during the second quarter of the year, programme budgets which had been curtailed as a result of the lower than expected resources received in 2003. During the year, the Secretariat has been heavily involved in a review of TC processes, with a view to streamline and strengthen them. The main part of the change process is planned to be completed in 2005. While the implementation rate for the programme dropped four percentage points to 68%, compared with 2003, the total disbursements for the programme in 2004 were slightly higher than in 2003 by nearly $120 000. A further challenge to the programme has been the replacement of assessed programme costs with national participation costs as approved by the Board of Governors in 2004. (author) [Spanish] En el Informe de cooperacion tecnica para 2004 se destacan las actividades y los logros del programa de cooperacion tecnica en el ultimo ano. Durante 2004, la Secretaria ultimo el programa de cooperacion tecnica para el bienio 2005-2006 que la Junta de Gobernadores aprobo en noviembre de 2004. En relacion con el programa para 2005-2006, se llevo a cabo un proceso revisado de evaluacion de los proyectos que aporto informacion adicional en cuanto al compromiso de los gobiernos, las capacidades nacionales, los indicadores de ejecucion de los proyectos y los resultados de esos proyectos. En el bienio 2005-2006 se incluye un programa fortalecido de mejoramiento de la infraestructura de proteccion radiologica. La Secretaria utilizo la experiencia acumulada en los ultimos diez anos, asi como las conclusiones de las evaluaciones, para crear un programa que se basase en los exitos y las ensenanzas deducidas a fin de garantizar el uso seguro de la tecnologia nuclear en el marco de infraestructuras debidamente reglamentadas. En las actividades realizadas en 2004 se aprovecharon los buenos resultados logrados anteriormente en proyectos nacionales y regionales en muchas esferas tematicas. En el marco del programa se siguieron reforzando las capacidades relacionadas con el diagnostico y el tratamiento del cancer proporcionando capacitacion y conocimientos especializados y apoyando la adquisicion de equipo. El apoyo constante a las tecnicas de vigilancia que emplean tecnologia nuclear esta ayudando a combatir las enfermedades pecuarias transfronterizas y se esta traduciendo en la desaparicion de la peste bovina de algunos paises. La Secretaria siguio proporcionando conocimientos especializados y apoyo para ayudar en la devolucion al pais de origen de combustible de uranio muy enriquecido para reactores. La creacion de asociaciones con otras organizaciones de las Naciones Unidas, asi como con organizaciones no gubernamentales, sigue revistiendo gran importancia dentro del programa de cooperacion tecnica. En 2004, por ejemplo, se firmo un memorando de entendimiento con la Oficina Regional para Africa (AFRO) de la Organizacion Mundial de la Salud (OMS) para apoyar la mejora de la situacion sanitaria y elevar los niveles de salud de la region. Los recursos extrapresupuestarios ascendieron a mas de 10 millones de dolares por segundo ano consecutivo. De esta forma, el 17% de las actividades del programa aprobadas marcadas con la nota a/ para 2004 recibieron apoyo. Asimismo, la entrada en 2004 de 8,1 millones de dolares correspondientes a cifras objetivo de anos anteriores permitio a la Secretaria restablecer, durante el segundo trimestre del ano, presupuestos de programas que habia sido preciso reducir debido a la cuantia, inferior a los previsto, de los recursos recibidos en 2003. Durante el ano, la Secretaria ha participado intensivamente en el examen de los procesos de CT con miras a simplificarlos y fortalecerlos. Esta previsto que la parte mas importante del proceso de cambio haya finalizado en 2005. Aunque la tasa de ejecucion del programa cayo en cuatro puntos porcentuales, situandose en el 68%, en comparacion con las cifras de 2003 el total de desembolsos para el programa de 2004 fue ligeramente superior al de 2003 en aproximadamente 120 000 dolares. Otro desafio para el programa ha sido la sustitucion de las contribuciones a los gastos del programa por los gastos nacionales de participacion, tal como aprobo la Junta de Gobernadores en 2004.
