This TECDOC presents the Regional Strategic Profile (RSP) for Latin America and the Caribbean for 2016–2021. The RSP reflects an assessment of the situation in the region made by the States Parties to the Regional Cooperation Agreement for the Promotion of Nuclear Science and Technology in Latin America and the Caribbean (ARCAL). It identifies the most pressing needs that can be addressed through nuclear technology. The 39 needs/problems identified are classified into six thematic areas representing the priority areas within the scope of the new RSP: food security, human health, environment, energy, radiation safety and radiation technologies.
