Development and management of human resources in the nuclear field is one of the crucial factors for its safety and sustainability. Many of the challenges that influence human resources development (HRD) are common to countries that are operating, expanding or developing nuclear power programmes. They also affect countries hosting research reactors, radioactive waste management and fuel cycle facilities.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) supports Member States in improving their capabilities to develop and maintain a competent workforce and in ensuring that critical knowledge and skills are transferred in all phases of the life cycle of nuclear facilities.

The conference programme has been developed using an integrated approach to human resources development and nuclear knowledge management (NKM) to better serve the needs of Member States.
