African Regional Cooperative Agreement for Research, Development and Training related to Nuclear Science and Technology (AFRA)

AFRA is an intergovernmental Agreement established by African Member States to strengthen and enlarge the contribution of nuclear science and technology to socioeconomic development on the African continent.

AFRA, which entered into force on 4 April 1990, provides a framework for African Member States to intensify their collaboration through programmes and projects focused on the specific shared needs of its members. Its activities cover a wide range of peaceful applications of nuclear techniques that contribute to the achievement of national and regional development goals.
