Kattil, Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Hua Liu, IAEA Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Technical Cooperation, signed Marshall Islands’ Country Programme Framework (CPF) for the period of 2022-2027 on 14 October. A CPF is the frame of reference for the medium-term planning of technical cooperation between a Member State and the IAEA and identifies priority areas where the transfer of nuclear technology and technical cooperation resources will be directed to support national development goals.

Marshall Islands has been an IAEA Member State since 1994. Its 2022-2027 CPF identifies four priority areas:

  1. Radiation Safety and Nuclear Security
  2. Food and Agriculture
  3. Health and Nutrition
  4. Water and Environment

The priority areas will be addressed through the national programme and complementarily, with the projects under the Sub Regional Approach to the Pacific Islands (SAPI) initiative.
