This policy brief argues that nuclear energy is a promising choice for developing countries such as Pakistan. At the global level, climatic threats alongside geopolitical crises have led to a renewed interest in nuclear energy. Currently, both advanced and developing countries are exploring options for self-reliance in energy.
