Nuclear Nonproliferation: More Progress Needed in Implementing Recommendations for IAEA's Technical Cooperation Program: Congressional Testimony
DIANE Publishing, May 1, 2011 - 18 pages
A key mission of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is promoting the peaceful uses of nuclear energy through its Technical Cooperation (TC) program, which provides equipment, training, fellowships, and other services to its member states. The U.S. provides approx. 25% of the TC program's annual budget. While the vast majority of TC projects have not involved the transfer of sensitive nuclear materials and technology, TC assistance has been provided to countries of proliferation concern. This testimony discusses: (1) findings and recommendations to the Dept. of State and IAEA; and (2) agency progress made to implement recommendations to address these concerns. This is a print on demand report.
