About

"The IAEA is the world´s center of cooperation in the nuclear field. It was set up as the world´s "Atoms for Peace" organization in 1957 within the United Nations family. The Agency works with its Member States and multiple partners worldwide to promote safe, secure and peaceful nuclear technologies."[2]

"In 1999 the IAEA initiated a multi-agency study on Indicators for Sustainable Energy Development (ISED) to supplement the United Nations Work Programme on Indicators of Sustainable Development (WPISD). Partners include the OECD International Energy Agency (IEA), UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), Eurostat, and the European Environment Agency. The interim report was presented in 2001 at the 9th session of the Commission on Sustainable Development in New York."[3]

Nuclear Techniques Help Scientists Save Myanmar’s UNESCO Biosphere Reserve
<p>Ongoing deforestation around Inle Lake is leading to significant soil erosion in one of its major tributaries, causing soil accumulation in the lake and threatening the fragile ecosystem of this UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. This conclusion of a study using nuclear techniques, which have also identified the exact sources of the soil erosion in the Kalaw watershed, will enable local forestry officials to target their conservation efforts in the areas most susceptible to erosion.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/IaeaTopNews/~4/PbAztPdoTj8" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
