Energy, natural resources and cartography

The conservation, development and use of energy and natural resources continued to be the focus of several United Nations bodies in 2013. The International Atomic Energy Agency continued to assist member States in applying nuclear technology in the areas of food and agriculture, health, water resources and the environment; and addressed matters related to nuclear safety and security, nuclear verification and technical cooperation. During the year, the General Assembly adopted resolutions on the role of the international community in averting the radiation threat in Central Asia; and on the reliable and stable transit of energy and its role in ensuring sustainable development and international cooperation.
