The Peaceful Uses Initiative is fully reliant on extra-budgetary contributions and has no impact on the IAEA’s regular budget or other activities. It is a supplementary mechanism to the Technical Cooperation Fund and has allowed the IAEA to be more flexible and quicker in responding to shifting priorities of Member States, as well as to unexpected needs or unforeseen emergency events.

Over €100 million in financial contributions have been received from 24 Member States and the European Commission, in support of more than 194 projects that benefit more than 151 Member States.
