The Head of the Planning and Economics Studies Section of the IAEA's Department of Nuclear Energy, Hans-Holger Rogner, will present two IAEA partnerships at the Sandton Convention Centre on 1 September from 15:30 to 16:00. Both of these partnerships reflect the Agencies ongoing efforts to build capacity in the area of energy planning.
