International Atomic Energy Agency. Wagramer Str. 5, P.O. Box 100 A1400 Vienna, Austria: International Atomic Energy Agency, March 2005. +43 1 2600 22529. ISBN 92-0-112904-1. 187 pp. 15.00 [euro].

Globalization has led to growing importance of the uranium production industries of the world's developing countries. Uranium supply from these countries could be increasingly important in satisfying worldwide reactor requirements over time. Along with the increasing contribution to worldwide uranium supply, the environmental impact of uranium production in developing countries has come under increasing scrutiny from the nuclear power industry, the end-users of this supply, and from communities impacted by uranium mining and processing. The papers presented at the meeting on "Developments in Uranium Resources, Production, Demand and the Environment" provide an important overview of uranium production operations and of their environmental consequences in developing countries, as well as offering insight into future production plans and potential.
