I have gone through the report and it is drafted in an excellent way with abundant educational resources. I think the report meets the SDG Goals as well as explains the benefits of Nuclear Energy with best Economic analysis, comparison of LCOE (Levelized Cost of Electricity) and Green House Gas Emission Issues, Climate Change, so on and so forth.

This report is  very useful for enabling countries to assess how nuclear technology can play an important role in achieving all the SDGs.In addition to electricity generation, it shows how nuclear can make an important contribution to reduction of emissions in many other areas, for example by supplying process heat and production of hydrogen.
    The very high density of nuclear energy means that the quantity of uranium that is required to be mined is low and the land use for nuclear facilities is much less than for any other electricity generation technologies.Innovative SMRs are starting to be deployed and will be particularly suitable for new countries as a low cost entry to nuclear power.
