For over sixty years, the United Nations has been at the forefront of promoting and facilitating the peaceful uses of nuclear technologies. Through the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which was established in 1957 with a dual mandate emphasizing the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons as well as peaceful uses of nuclear energy, the United Nations has carried out projects around the world that have encompassed the full spectrum of nuclear issues. IAEA assistance programmes are enabling Member States to access nuclear know-how, training and equipment in order to treat cancer, generate electricity, manage their water supplies, protect the oceans and monitor climate change.
