About AFCONE

The Treaty of Pelindaba established the African Commission on Nuclear Energy (AFCONE). AFCONE plays a key role in advancing the peaceful application of nuclear science and technology in Africa and in bringing much-needed support to States Parties to fully benefit from nuclear sciences and technology applications in the areas of health, agriculture and energy. AFCONE is also actively engaged in global and regional efforts towards disarmament and non-proliferation.

Members of AFCONE are represented through Commissioners, who meet in annual Ordinary Sessions to discuss all aspects relating to the implementation of the AFCONE programme of work.
