Professor Intisar Al-Zein Saghiroun, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research of the Government of the Sudan, and Dazhu Yang, IAEA Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Technical Cooperation, signed Sudan’s Country Programme Framework (CPF) for the period of 2021–2027 on 29 December and 18 December 2020, respectively.

  1. Radiation and Nuclear Safety and Security     
  2. Food and Agriculture
  3. Health and Nutrition 
  4. Water and the Environment  
  5. Energy and Industrial Applications    
  6. Human Resources Development
