Uranium mining’s contribution to the sustainable development goals

Nuclear energy and technology contributes to all of the United Nations sustainable development goals (SDGs).

The mining industry generally has the potential and opportunity to contribute to all 17 SDGs, but uranium mining in Africa can promote the following SDGs in particular:

SDG1 Poverty Eradication and SDG2 Zero Hunger

Direct and indirect employment, where uranium mining provides highly paid jobs that have a multiplier effect in the local community.

No Poverty

Zero Hunger

SDG3 Good Health and Well Being

Medical and radiation monitoring of employees and communities promotes greater medical awareness, particularly where medical facilities are not generally available.

Good Health and Well-Being

SDG4 Quality Education and SDG8 Decent Work and Economic Growth

Uranium mining and associated government and private capability development provides opportunities for highly skilled development and employment. Uranium mining is a sophisticated enterprise that creates a significant number of well-paid jobs, high levels of workplace training and regular vocational health assessments.
