The suppression of the high risks involved in the Nuclear energy venture tremendously depends on the safety culture of all stakeholders. Despite the commendable efforts that have been made towards nuclear security, there are still some significant loopholes which could retard this progress if not addressed. This paper reviews the global effort towards nuclear security and safety; focusing on the activities of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and of participating Nations as entangled factors to determine the sustainability of a secured and safe nuclear energy future. The authors presented the two possible global nuclear security scenarios in the nearest future; highlighting the nuclear security culture and action plans which could enhance the global nuclear security and prevent the world from the high-risk scenario were proffered. The recommended actions are expected to provide a breakdown insight to what is expected of individual Nuclear Energy countries as an entity to contribute to a strong safety climate in the world of Nuclear Energy.
