The International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) Nuclear Fuel Bank - Lesson in Diplomacy

 

While the tragic disaster at the Japanese nuclear reactor last March may have slowed the rising interest in nuclear energy, countries worldwide continue to explore civil nuclear energy to answer development needs. A critical question for the international community is how to support nuclear energy programs while ensuring peaceful use—the same technology for nuclear fuel can be use to create nuclear weapons materials. One part of the answer is the new international nuclear fuel bank, approved by International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) Board of Governors last December. The fuel bank will give countries assurance of fuel supply, if they decide not to pursue enrichment technologies to produce nuclear fuel. This important decision, which has been discussed for decades, was made possible by a $50 million pledge proposed by the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) and Warren Buffett, a key NTI adviser who financially backed and enabled NTI's commitment.

Please join us for a behind-the-scenes look at how the fuel bank was approved and learn about the IAEA’s next steps with Corey Hinderstein, NTI Vice President, International Program.
