RCA Regional Profile – January 2010
- More Assistance requested in the awareness and promotion of the

III. Current Status and Issues(2)
Partnership Promotion Activities

Results of RCARO workshop in July 2009.
- It is difficult to develop partnership projects with novel application of
nuclear techniques other than the RCA projects.
- RCARO continue to investigate potential funding source for
partnership development and could consider outsourcing of
promotional experts for partnership development.
- RCARO will focus on the feasibilities of expanding the application of
RCA project results and further development of the RCA projects.

Major Issues(examples)
- Lack of information and experiences, no mechanism and promotional
experts to develop partnership projects in strategic manner.
- Difficulty in meeting RCA criteria and those of potential partners,
utilization of nuclear techniques and no overlapping with RCA projects

III. Current Status and Issues(3)
New Demand for supporting RCA Programme Activities
During the 32nd NRM in April 2010, Member States suggested
RCARO’s roles ;
- In effective transmission of information of RCA programme to MSs
- Improving awareness of NPCs on RCA policy matters during
progress and review meeting of RCA projects
- Participation in RCA project meeting
RCA Projects are core and important activities in RCA programme.
But RCARO has not participated in RCA projects and may have to
explore the ways to support RCA-FP and to participate in RCA
projects.
