International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Technical Cooperation Programme – Supporting Knowledgeable Decision-making and Building Capacities to Start and Implement Nuclear Power
A three-week course to ‘train the trainers’ from Member States and provide them with tools to develop national training programmes on building the necessary skills and capabilities for nuclear infrastructure development. The overall focus of the course was on what makes a nuclear power project unique among other major projects and the characteristics of nuclear power that need special attention. These include nuclear safety, security and safeguards; implementing international legal instruments; enacting a comprehensive nuclear law and establishing a regulatory framework; financing and government involvement; and the need to accumulate funds for decommissioning and radioactive waste management.
