Program areas at NTI

Global Nuclear Policy Program (GNPP). In 2017, GNPP continued to work with governments, partner organizations, and influential voices around the world to develop, sustain, and build support for effective policies to reduce reliance on nuclear weapons and prevent their spread and their use anywhere in the world. GNPP engaged in public and non-public efforts to guide developments on Euro-Atlantic Security and relations with Russia, including convening a number of global meetings of high-profile current and former officials, experts, and next-generation leaders.

Materials Security and Minimization Program (MSM). In 2017, MSM worked closely with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to ensure the successful launch of the IAEA low-enriched uranium (LEU) bank in Kazakhstan, a project that was jump-started by NTI more than a decade ago. MSM also collaborated with state and city leaders in the United States and governments around the world to reduce radiological "dirty bomb" risks. During the year, MSM also worked to advance constructive nuclear and radiological security engagement in priority regions such as the former Soviet Union (Russia/Central Asia) and South Asia. Lastly, through MSM and other programs, NTI completed Phase I of its work in partnership with the U.S. Department of State to bring 25 countries together on nuclear disarmament verification.

Communications and Public Education Program. In 2017, NTI continued its public education initiatives primarily through its maintenance of an extensive online library that includes interactive maps and models, tutorials, and infographics related to the risks and threats from nuclear, biological, radiological and chemical weapons. During the year, NTI built a new digital Education Center on that includes educational tools and resources for those learning and teaching about nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction issues. NTI also provided extensive and widely used in-depth resources on North Korea, including a virtual reality tour of the North Korean nuclear test site, Punggye-ri. In continuing its education initiatives with faith-based communities, NTI supported a Vatican-hosted high-level symposium, "Prospects for a World Free from Nuclear Weapons and for Integral Disarmament," which drew, among others, 11 Nobel Peace Laureates, top United Nations and NATO officials, and heads of major foundations and civil society organizations.
