The international community has been meeting at the United Nations in Vienna to discuss how best to improve safety at nuclear power plants.

The UN's International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) endorsed the creation of the Nuclear Safety Action Plan following an accident at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi plant in 2011.

The nuclear reactor was damaged and radiation was released into the atmosphere as a result of an earthquake and tsunami.
