The first IAEA cooperation center in the Middle East for radiation monitoring

Kuwait has signed an agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to accredit the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research to monitor radioactivity.

According to the October 6th statement, the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) has been accredited as the first center of cooperation in the Middle East in the field of monitoring radioactivity in the environment and the use of nuclear technologies to study the coastal environment.

The Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) is a national institution established in 1967. Initially its role was to develop three areas of national interest: petroleum, desert agriculture, and aquaculture.

Since then, the Institute’s role has been expanded to include the development of national industry and studies to address the major challenges facing the State, such as the preservation of the environment, sustainable management of Kuwait’s natural resources, the rational management of water and energy, and the development of innovative methods of agriculture.
