IAEA – International Atomic Energy Agency


The IAEA started its journey as an independent global body on July 29, 1957. Its main goal is to encourage the safe use of nuclear energy and prevent its military misuse, like making nuclear weapons. It was formed through its own treaty, the IAEA Statute, and now collaborates closely with the UN General Assembly and Security Council. Headquartered in Vienna, Austria, it serves as a vital platform for countries to work together on nuclear technology and energy.
