The IAEA's Technical Assistance and Cooperation Committee (TACC) on Wednesday (November 25) recommended for approval to the IAEA Board of Governors the Agency’s Technical Cooperation (TC) Programme for 2016-2017 and the TC budget for 2016. The latter earmarks 74.3 million euros for new and ongoing core technical cooperation projects, and another 61.4 million euros for technical cooperation projects for which funding has not so far been identified – so called “footnote-a” projects, Caspian Energy News ( reports with reference to the press statement of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

There are a total of 648 new projects in the 2016-2017 TC programme. These have been developed at the request of the Member States, and cover a diverse range of areas, including nuclear safety and security, health and nutrition, food and agriculture, nuclear energy, energy planning and water resource management.

The TC programme is the main vehicle through which the IAEA delivers assistance to its Member States. The TACC meets in November every year to consider the coming annual or biennial programme.
