We are in a new and more dangerous era in which the likelihood of use of weapons of mass destruction and disruption—nuclear, biological, radiological, or cyber—by individuals, terrorist organizations, and states is growing. At the same time, governments’ ability to understand and manage the increasingly complex set of global security threats is declining. The Nuclear Threat Initiative delivers innovative, real-world solutions that address these challenges and create lasting change.
NTI’s key are of focus are:
- Prevent the use of nuclear weapons by states
- Reduce nuclear and biological terrorism
- Prevent the spread of nuclear weapons
- Reduce the risk of catastrophic biological events
NTI’s mission is to transform global security by driving systemic solutions to nuclear and biological threats imperiling humanity. We work with presidents and prime ministers, scientists and technicians, experts and analysts. NTI collaborates with governments and organizations worldwide to raise awareness, advocate, and implement creative solutions. As an independent and trusted partner, we have been able to transcend traditional thinking and stimulate new ways to address urgent threats.
