Rio+20 side event on Nuclear Energy and Sustainable Development

This side event focused on four of Rio+20’s seven critical issues — energy, food, water and oceans. It will review applications of nuclear technology to all four issues and present initial progress on integrated modelling to help devise mutually supportive policies for energy, food, water and oceans and avoid conflicting policies. The event is co-organized by the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Mexican National Water Commission (CONAGUA) and the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency.
