Women have a "powerful voice" in the global scientific community, the head of a UN partner organization that works to end nuclear testing has said.

Lassina Zerbo, Executive Secretary of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization or CTBTO, was speaking on the last day of an international conference on science and technology that took place in Vienna, Austria.

CTBTO is active in traditionally male-dominated fields, but it has been making an effort to increase women's representation in the organization.

Speaking to Rocio Franco Rivero, Mr Zerbo also underscored the importance of having so many young people take part in the event.
