Global Energy Security
International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)
The IAEA is the world's centre for cooperation in the nuclear field. It was set up as the world's "Atoms for Peace" organisation in 1957 within the United Nations family. The Agency works with its Member States and multiple partners worldwide to promote the safe, secure and peaceful use of nuclear technologies. The IAEA works for the safe, secure and peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology. Its key roles contribute to international peace and security, and to the world's Millennium Goals for social, economic and environmental development.
FORATOM acts as the voice of the European nuclear industry in energy policy discussions with EU Institutions and other key stakeholders. It provides a bridge between its members and European policy-makers, thereby helping the industry to play a leading role in the policy debate.
Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA)
The Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) is a specialised agency within the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), an intergovernmental organisation of industrialised countries based in Paris, France. Its mission is "to assist its member countries in maintaining and further developing, through international co-operation, the scientific, technological and legal bases required for a safe, environmentally friendly and economical use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. To provide authoritative assessments and to forge common understandings on key issues as input to government decisions on nuclear energy policy and to broader OECD policy analyses in areas such as energy and sustainable development.

World Nuclear Association
The World Nuclear Association is the international organisation that promotes nuclear energy and supports the many companies that comprise the global nuclear industry. WNA membership encompasses virtually all world uranium mining, conversion, enrichment and fuel fabrication; all reactor vendors; major nuclear engineering, construction, and waste management companies; and the majority of world nuclear generation. Other WNA members provide international services in nuclear transport, law, insurance, brokerage, industry analysis and finance. The WNA Information Library consists of nearly 150 frequently-updated information papers, which together provide encyclopaedic coverage of topics related to nuclear power and other nuclear technologies.
