About the Conference
Following the successful International Conference on Nuclear Security: Enhancing Global Efforts held in Vienna, Austria, in July 2013, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is organizing a second conference in this area — the International Conference on Nuclear Security: Commitments and Actions — at its Headquarters in Vienna, Austria. The Ministerial Declaration made at the 2013 conference called on the IAEA to consider organizing international conferences on nuclear security every three years. Similarly, the resolution on nuclear security (GC(59)/RES/10) adopted at the 59th regular session of the IAEA General Conference in September 2015 called upon the Secretariat to continue to organize such conferences every three years and encouraged all States to participate at a high level. In this regard, the IAEA expects ministerial level participation in the 2016 conference, as well as the involvement of policymakers and legal, regulatory and technical experts.
The conference is being convened to discuss the national and international community’s experiences and achievements to date in strengthening nuclear security; to enhance understanding of current approaches to nuclear security worldwide; to identify trends; and to provide an inclusive forum at which ministers, policymakers, senior officials and nuclear security experts can formulate and exchange views on future directions and priorities for nuclear security and how these may evolve.
The 2016 conference will have two main parts:
1. A ministerial segment which will provide an opportunity for ministers to deliver messages on achievements, commitments and actions, and adopt a Ministerial Declaration; and
2. A scientific and technical programme comprising high level policy discussions on six broad themes central to nuclear security and parallel technical sessions on specialized scientific technical, legal and regulatory issues concerning nuclear security.
