The Department of Technical Cooperation (TC) consists of the Office of the Deputy Director General, four regional Divisions (Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and Latin America) and a Division of Programme Support and Coordination.
The TC operating environment is interactive, participative and dynamic. Continuous inputs are received from the Board of Governors, the General Conference, policy and decision-makers as well as technical counterparts in Member States, other parts of the Secretariat and the international development community.
The Divisions are responsible for planning, programming, implementing and monitoring the technical cooperation programme in accordance with the IAEA Medium Term Strategy and operational guidelines. This includes the development of Country Programme Frameworks and the formulation and implementation of projects which respond to relevant developmental priorities. Projects are expected to foster the self-reliance of Member States in the sustainable application of nuclear techniques, resource mobilization and partnerships building, and to enhance regional collaboration and cooperation, leading to greater recognition of the IAEA as a partner in development.
The Division of Programme Support and Coordination is responsible for enhancing quality and transparency in the design, delivery and monitoring of the technical cooperation programme through timely, accurate and effective support services. These involve strategies, concepts and tools, communication and partnership services, and planning and coordination of policy matters and procedures. TCPC services also involve overall guidance and coordination of the management of financial resources, IT services, and the provision of information to senior management and Member States, including the drafting of reports to the Board of Governors and the General Conference.
