The iaea and its mission
The IAEA and its Mission

Maximizing the contribution of nuclear technology to the worldwhile verifying its peaceful use

Iaea three pillars
IAEA - Three Pillars

Safeguards & Verification

The IAEA performs an indispensable role in furthering non-proliferation through verifying States' commitments regarding the peaceful use of nuclear energy

Safety & Security

The IAEA works to protect people and the environment from harmful radiation exposure.

Science & Technology

The IAEA works to foster nuclear applications in Member States.

Iaea characteristics
IAEA / characteristics

  • Global membership

    • developed and developing countries alike

  • Unique mandates in particular …

    • in nuclear safety (IAEA Safety Standards)

    • in the area of non-proliferation and safeguards

  • Technical capacity

    • in Secretariat itself and in its technical programmes, e.g. in nuclear energy, science and technology

  • Capacity building mechanisms

    • through Technical Cooperation programme

Department of Nuclear Energy


Division of Nuclear Power

Dept of nuclear energy
Dept. of Nuclear Energy

  • The mission of the Department of Nuclear Energy is characterized by three words:

    • support,

    • catalyse and

    • build.

  • The Department fosters the efficient and safe use of nuclear power by supporting existing and new nuclear programmes around the world, catalyzing innovation and building indigenous capability in energy planning, analysis, and nuclear information and knowledge.


Facilitate information exchange and collaborative research and development in the area of nuclear system technologies needed to meet, in a sustainable manner, the increasing energy demands of the 21st century.


Iaea approach
IAEA Approach

  • To help ensure that nuclear energy is available to contribute, in a sustainable manner, to the energy needs of the 21st century.

  • To bring together technologyholdersand users to consider jointly national and international actions required for achieving desired innovations in nuclear reactors and fuel cycles.

Holistic nature of nesa
HolisticNature of NESA

Nuclear Energy System Assessment (NESA)

Covers innovative and evolutionary designs of all reactor types and Nuclear Fuel Cycle facilities.

  • Covers all components (or facilities) of a Nuclear Energy System (no matter where located).

  • All phases of a Nuclear Energy System, i.e. cradle to grave.

Potential users of a nesa
Potential Users of a NESA

Benefit for 3 Potential users of INPRO Methodology in a NESA:

  • Technology developers: Assistance for planning/ executing R&D.

  • Technology users:  Assistance for decision making when considering additional deployment of NES components.

  • Prospective first time users:Assistance with becoming knowledgeable .

Architecture of inpro requirements

Basic Principles

User Requirements


Architecture of INPRO requirements

Basic Principles :goals for development of sustainable NES.

User Requirements:what should be done by designer, operator, industry and/or State to meet goal defined in Basic Principle.

Criteria:Assessor’s tools to check whether a User Requirement has been met .

Characteristics of inpro requirements
Characteristics of INPRO Requirements

  • INPRO User Requirements are directed at:

    • Designeror developer of nuclear facilities.

    • State (government institutions).

    • Operator of nuclear facilities.

    • National industry (involved in nuclear power program).

  • Input data needed for evaluation of INPRO User Requirements to be provided by responsible organization.

“Milestones in the development of a National Infrastructure for Nuclear Power”

New tool for new comers

  • IAEA Milestones

  • National Position

  • Legal Framework

  • Safeguards and Security

  • Nuclear Power Infrastructure

  • Human Resource Development

  • Safety/Regulatory Framework

  • First Nuclear Plant

  • Radioactive Waste Management


  • Nuclear Power Option remains in the mix of primary energy sources for diversity, security of supply, and because of its low carbon emissions

  • Fukushima has raised new challenges

  • Our collective wisdom will find solutions to overcome the evolving challenges and manage the risks to an acceptable level

  • Innovative technologies can contribute to safe, secure, economic and proliferation resistant nuclear energy systems.

  • IAEA provides leadership to address challenges
