As COP26 came to a close and we find the world still struggling to address the objectives set by the Paris Agreement in 2015, the capacity for nuclear energy to serve as a vital element in global decarbonization plans remains a topic that is chronically underplayed in international debates. For the world to succeed in meeting the unprecedented targets set by governments, activists, and climate scientists, this posture must change.
NEA Director-General Magwood will present recent analyses by the NEA that highlights the role that SMR and Generation IV reactors can play in addressing the historic challenge of reducing carbon emissions and the major barriers to success. He will also highlight initiatives conducted by the NEA to support its members in addressing the human capacity and scientific infrastructure needs for the future.

The Agency’s mission is to serve as a platform for advanced countries to cooperate in order address challenging issues associated with nuclear energy including the deployment and regulation of advanced nuclear technologies.
