In Doha, Qatar, over 17 000 delegates from 194 countries that are party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change are meeting at their annual Conference of the Parties, or COP, to assess progress in mitigating and adapting to climate change. The IAEA is also present at this "COP-18", which also serves as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol.
An updated issue of the IAEA's report on Climate Change and Nuclear Power 2012 was launched at COP-18.
Alan McDonald, an energy expert at the IAEA, explains in this video the highlights of that report. He also provides an overview of the IAEA's activities at COP-18, the expected outcomes from the Conference, and the future of nuclear power.
