The Myanmar Country Programme Framework (CPF), which constitutes the frame of reference for the medium-term planning of technical cooperation between the Government of the Union of Myanmar and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) was initiated in 2001. On 15 December 2009 the first CPF with Myanmar was signed at the IAEA Hq., by Ms Ana-María Cetto, Deputy Director General, Department of Technical Cooperation and, on behalf of the Government of Myanmar, by Mr Tin Win, Ambassador, Embassy of the Union of Myanmar, Federal Republic of Germany.

The present CPF covers the period 2009-2014 and provides a basis for the conception and formulation of reliable technical cooperation projects, meeting the quality and sustainability criteria required by the IAEA. The cooperation activities for the period mentioned above focus on the following priority sectors:

  • Agriculture and livestock production and health;
  • Human health;
  • Strengthening of national capability in nuclear science and technology;
  • Radiation safety and nuclear security;
  • Water resource management, and
  • Industrial application of radioisotopes, including non-destructive testing techniques.

In addition, in view of the pressing need to build a sustainable human capacity in all high priority nuclear techniques, particular efforts will be made to tackle this cross-cutting priority area, mostly through specific and general training and scientific visits as well as support to the national education and training institutions.

The CPF has been developed following broad and in-depth consultations between the IAEA and the competent authorities of Myanmar on the basis of a thorough analysis of what nuclear science and technology can contribute to the achievement of the national development objectives, taking into account the current state of development of nuclear applications in Myanmar. These consultations, conducted at both the political and operational level, have involved decision-makers representing the various appropriate socio-economic sectors and managers of national institutions, with a view to defining a common approach to the effective integration of relevant nuclear techniques into high-priority national programmes for sustainable development.
