Technical Cooperation Report for 2005. Report by the Director General; Informe de Cooperacion Tecnica para 2005. Informe del Director General

Abstract

The Technical Cooperation Report for 2005 provides highlights of activities and achievements of the technical cooperation (TC) programme for the past year. The document also describes developments regarding the management of the programme and financial matters. Engaging and maintaining partners for development remained a priority for the Secretariat. During 2005, cooperation with the United Nations Development Programme/Global Environment Facility continued with a project in Africa regarding the management of the Nubian sandstone aquifer system. The TC programme is also playing a role in programmes funded through the World Bank (Guarani Aquifer Project), Asian Development Bank (Clean Air Initiative for Asian Cities) and African Development Bank (Southern Rift Valley Tsetse Eradication Project in Ethiopia and tsetse projects in other countries). TC programme activities during 2005 continued to support Member States in developmental areas related to nuclear science and technology. The spectrum of activities included the development of a system for the disposal of sealed radioactive sources; providing expert advice and computer applications for energy planning; training nuclear medicine specialists and radiation oncologists; continuing the core conversion of research reactor fuel from highly enriched uranium to low enriched uranium; and evaluating and monitoring a marine ecosystem for pollution sources and developing remedial  More>>

The document also describes developments regarding the management of the programme and financial matters. Engaging and maintaining partners for development remained a priority for the Secretariat. During 2005, cooperation with the United Nations Development Programme/Global Environment Facility continued with a project in Africa regarding the management of the Nubian sandstone aquifer system. The TC programme is also playing a role in programmes funded through the World Bank (Guarani Aquifer Project), Asian Development Bank (Clean Air Initiative for Asian Cities) and African Development Bank (Southern Rift Valley Tsetse Eradication Project in Ethiopia and tsetse projects in other countries). TC programme activities during 2005 continued to support Member States in developmental areas related to nuclear science and technology. The spectrum of activities included the development of a system for the disposal of sealed radioactive sources; providing expert advice and computer applications for energy planning; training nuclear medicine specialists and radiation oncologists; continuing the core conversion of research reactor fuel from highly enriched uranium to low enriched uranium; and evaluating and monitoring a marine ecosystem for pollution sources and developing remedial actions. Along with implementing the programme for 2005, Secretariat staff were involved in the final phases of the change initiative. The new structure for the Department of Technical Cooperation took effect as of 9 December 2005. The review of programming processes evolved into the development of the Programme Cycle Management Framework. This approach to TC programming is facilitated by a web-based platform for stakeholders to develop and manage TC projects from concept through project design, approval, implementation and evaluation. To identify how the changes in the structure of the Department and in the programming process will affect stakeholder satisfaction, the Department conducted surveys to establish a baseline for future assessments. The surveys targeted, inter alia, Member States, including National Liaison Officers, national coordinators, project counterparts and representatives at Missions in Vienna, and show that this grouping is satisfied overall with the programme. Financial indicators, including the value of the programme to be delivered, new resources, disbursements and new obligations for 2005 were all above 2004 levels. Extrabudgetary resources rose to a new record level of $14.9 million. Some $10.2 million of these resources were used to upgrade footnote-a/ projects or project components, providing funding for just under 25% of the approved footnote-a/ budgets. (author) [Spanish] En el Informe de cooperacion tecnica para 2005 se destacan las actividades y los logros del programa de cooperacion tecnica (CT) en el ultimo ano. En el documento tambien se exponen las novedades relacionadas con la gestion del programa y los asuntos financieros. La busqueda y el mantenimiento de asociados para el desarrollo siguio siendo una prioridad de la Secretaria. En 2005 la cooperacion con el Fondo para el Medio Ambiente Mundial del Programa de las Naciones Unidas para el Desarrollo prosiguio con un proyecto en Africa relacionado con la gestion del sistema de acuiferos de arenisca de Nubia. El programa de CT tambien esta desempenando una funcion importante en los programas financiados por conducto del Banco Mundial (proyecto del acuifero Guarani), el Banco Asiatico de Desarrollo (Iniciativa para un aire limpio en ciudades de Asia) y el Banco Africano de Desarrollo (proyecto de erradicacion de la mosca tsetse en la zona meridional del Valle del Rift, en Etiopia, y proyectos de lucha contra la mosca tsetse en otros paises). En las actividades del programa de CT durante 2005 se siguio prestando apoyo a los Estados Miembros en esferas de desarrollo asociadas a la ciencia y la tecnologia nucleares. La gama de actividades incluyo la creacion de un sistema para la disposicion final de fuentes radiactivas selladas; la prestacion de asesoramiento de expertos y aplicaciones informaticas para la planificacion energetica; la capacitacion de especialistas en medicina nuclear y de radiooncologos; la continuacion de la conversion del nucleo de los reactores de investigacion para que utilicen combustible de uranio poco enriquecido en lugar de uranio muy enriquecido; la evaluacion y el control de un ecosistema marino para determinar fuentes de contaminacion, y la formulacion de medidas correctivas. Al mismo tiempo que continuo aplicando el programa para 2005, el personal de la Secretaria participo en las etapas finales de la iniciativa de cambio. La nueva estructura del Departamento de Cooperacion Tecnica entro en vigor el 9 de diciembre de 2005. El examen de los procesos de programacion evoluciono hasta la elaboracion del Marco de gestion del ciclo del programa. Este enfoque respecto de la programacion de la CT esta facilitado por una plataforma basada en la web para los interesados que permite desarrollar y gestionar proyectos de CT desde el concepto hasta el diseno, la aprobacion, la ejecucion y la evaluacion del proyecto. Para determinar como los cambios en la estructura del Departamento y en el proceso de programacion repercutiran en la satisfaccion de los interesados, el Departamento realizo encuestas con objeto de establecer una base de referencia para las futuras evaluaciones. Las encuestas estuvieron dirigidas, entre otros, a los Estados Miembros, incluidos los oficiales nacionales de enlace, los coordinadores nacionales, los funcionarios de contraparte de los proyectos y los representantes de las Misiones en Viena, y demuestran que estos grupos estan satisfechos en general con el programa. Los indicadores financieros, incluidos el valor del programa que se habra de ejecutar, los nuevos recursos, los desembolsos y las nuevas obligaciones para 2005, estuvieron muy por encima de los niveles de 2004. Los recursos extrapresupuestarios ascendieron a un nuevo nivel sin precedente de 14,9 millones de dolares de los Estados Unidos. Unos 10,2 millones de dolares de estos recursos se utilizaron para elevar de categoria proyectos o componentes de proyectos marcados con la nota a/, y sirvieron para financiar poco menos del 25% de los presupuestos aprobados para proyectos marcados con la nota a/.
