Dr Eng. Joseph K. Njoroge, Principal Secretary, Ministry of Energy and Petroleum, Kenya, and Mr Dazhu Yang, IAEA Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Technical Cooperation, have signed Kenya’s Country Programme Framework (CPF) for the period of 2017–2022 on 31 May 2017. A CPF is the frame of reference for the medium-term planning of technical cooperation between a Member State and the IAEA and identifies priority areas where the transfer of nuclear technology and technical cooperation resources will be directed to support national development goals.
Kenya has been an IAEA Member State since 1965. Its 2017–2022 CPF identifies eight priority areas:
  1. Food and agriculture
  2. Human health
  3. Water resources management
  4. Agro-environmental management
  5. Industrial applications
  6. Sustainable energy development
  7. Human capacity building in nuclear science and technology
  8. Strengthening national radiation safety and nuclear security
