The Earth's environment is in constant threat: from climate change, natural catastrophes, pollution, and ecological damage resulting from various man-made activities, including accidental or intentional release of radioactivity. The ability to accurately measure the impact of these adverse environmental effects is crucial not only in determining the extent of damage but also to assist in remediating their effects.

In the early years of the IAEA, the need for accurate, scientific data to support the work of this Agency quickly became apparent. In 1964, on the advice of the International Nuclear Data Scientific Working Group (INDSWG) to the then IAEA Director General, Sigvard Eklund, the Nuclear Data Unit (NDU; later known as the Nuclear Data Section) was formed and has since worked under the guidance of the INDSWG (that later would come to be known as the International Nuclear Data Committee (INDC)).
