The Atoms for Peace and Development motto summarises the IAEA's mission, which is to ensure that nuclear technology is used only for peaceful purposes and to help Member States use this remarkable technology to improve the well-being and prosperity of their people.

This edition of the IAEA Bulletin features a selection of such stories about the many ways in which the IAEA works to improve the lives of people throughout the world through the use of peaceful nuclear technology.
