International Atomic Energy Agency / Regional Cooperative Agreement / UNDP Program


The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is an independent intergovernmental, science and technology based organization, in the United Nations family, that serves as the global focal point for nuclear co-operation. It assists its Member States in planning for and using nuclear science and technology for various peaceful purposes, and facilitates the transfer of such technology and knowledge in a sustainable manner to developing Member States. In pursuing this objective the IAEA became a partner with each Member State in the "Partnership in Development" strategy with a major goal to promote tangible socio-economic impact through Technical Cooperation (TC). Through this mechanism the IAEA contributes in a cost-effective manner to activities addressing high development priorities of its Member States.

The "air pollution project", initiated in 1997, is supported under the Regional Cooperation Agreement (RCA) for Research, Development and Training Related to Nuclear Science and Technology for Asia and the Pacific. The project objectives are: (i) to assess and compare air pollution levels in selected cities in the East Asia and Pacific Region through the use of nuclear and complementary analytical techniques, (ii) to identify and quantify critical air pollution sources, and (iii) to accumulate accurate air pollution data for future work on transboundary movement of airborne particulate matter (APM). Sixteen Member States are participating in the project.
