According to the World Nuclear Association (WNA), countries in the region which are individually planning or considering nuclear power are Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.

South Africa is on the brink of embarking on a new phase of nuclear development, capable of producing power for future decades that can be support energy needs across the region. Understanding why Pretoria regards this as the right move, how it plans to implement the programme, who might supply the technology and what lessons can be learned from nuclearprogrammes around the world is the goal of the POWER-GEN & DistribuTECH Africa One Day Nuclear Forum.

By raising awareness and understanding of the key issues affecting this key decision, South Africa can equip itself to make the best choice for its energy future.
