Forty years of uranium resources, production and demand in perspective
The NEA has been collecting and analysing data on uranium for forty years. The data and experience provide a number of answers to the questions being asked today, as many countries begin to look at nuclear energy with renewed interest. In terms of uranium resources, the lessons of the past give confi dence that uranium supply will remain adequate to meet demand.

  International peer reviews and radioactive waste management in France
The organisation of independent, international peer reviews of national studies and projects is an important NEA activity in the field of radioactive waste management. Several of these have been carried out over recent years, for example for the governments of Belgium, Switzerland and the United States. Member governments have found these reviews of significant value and are now asking for them to cover topics of a broader scope.
