The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) released its Technical Cooperation Report for 2014 on Tuesday.
   
The report states they were successful in providing technical assistance to 131 countries and territories globally, seven areas more than in 2013. IAEA aims to support member states of the Non-Proliferation Treaty in developing nuclear science programs and nuclear technology that is used for peaceful applications such as power generation.

In 2014, the IAEA signed 13 Country Program Frameworks with Argentina, Cameroon, Chile, Croatia, Cuba, Laos, Madagascar, Mauritania, Mauritius, Montenegro, Mozambique, Namibia and Slovakia. With these added, there are 91 Country Program Frameworks.

The report also indicated that in 2014 the IAEA assisted African countries in transferring nuclear technologies that would be able to help in areas relating to agriculture, environmental protection, food and water management, industrialization, and nuclear safety and security.

In other regions including Europe, Asia and Latin America the agency's main focus was in nuclear safety, human health and areas relating to food and agriculture.

Through the Technical Cooperation Fund, the IAEA was able to support nearly 3,500 expert and lecturer assignments and 5,285 meeting participants and other personnel. Also, 1,677 fellows and scientific visitors were supported and implemented under the Technical Coordination Program.
