The IAEA is an autonomous international organization within the United Nations system. It partners with more than a dozen UN organizations, thereby helping extend the reach of its services. The IAEA Director General is a member of the United Nations Chief Executive Board and regularly participates in the meetings chaired by the Secretary General of the United Nations.

September 1956, the Conference on the Statute of the IAEA took place at the United
Nations Headquarters and the IAEA Preparatory Committee performed most of its work
there. Soon after the entry into force of the Agency’s Statute — the event that we are

Governors and General Conference in October 1957 and by the United Nations General

the United Nations
Development Programme (UNDP) has supported more than 200 projects in developing
countries in the field of nuclear energy, for which the IAEA is the executing agency.
UNDP’s support has so far amounted to about 22 million dollars
