Like many countries in East Asia, Indonesia is rapidly moving toward the use of nuclear energy to meet the rising energy demands of its growing population and evolving industrial sector. With that development comes the need for a consistent methodology to train and maintain a professional culture of vigilance to ensure that nuclear technologies are employed safely and without interference from external threats.

With support from the U.S. government’s Partnership for Nuclear Security (now the Partnership for Nuclear Threat Reduction), CITS staff, along with external experts in organizational culture, conduct training in Indonesia and the United States. This training is intended to increase the capacity of Indonesian nuclear authorities to assess the progress of their own nuclear security culture, giving them the expertise necessary to identify and correct issues without further external assistance.

CITS staff have previously conducted similar training sessions in Bulgaria and for Ukrainian academics in Vienna.
