March 4 (Reuters) - International Atomic Energy Agency chief Rafael Grossi has asked global development banks and their government shareholders to fund new nuclear energy projects, stating that failing to do so could delay the energy transition, the Financial Times reported on Monday.

The U.N. nuclear watchdog chief told the Financial Times in an interview that lack of funding for emissions-free nuclear energy by multilateral lenders such as the World Bank and Asian Development Bank was "out of step" with the wishes of most of their shareholders, adding that there has been a "sea-change" in the outlook on nuclear power due to the climate crisis and the war in Ukraine.
