Here’s a breakdown of how the IAEA has wider access to, and more information on, Iran’s nuclear programme & now implements an even more robust verification system in the country under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA.

Today, to celebrate #WorldWaterDay, we want to bring you a little closer to our work in this area.

Nuclear technology is not usually associated to water. But did you know that, with the help of isotopic techniques, scientists can determine the quantity and quality of water supplies? They use naturally occurring isotopes as tracers to find out where groundwater comes from, if it is recent or old, if it is being recharged or polluted and how it travels. And this information is critical for using nature-based solutions like planting trees or restoring wetlands to help protect and manage it. The importance of water and these nature-based solutions is this year’s WorldWaterDay theme: ‘The answer is in nature’.
