Across the world, there are stockpiles of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons that should be consolidated, secured, accounted for and destroyed.
These weapons or materials could fall into the hands of terrorists or be illicitly sold to other countries, groups, or individuals. A number of non‑proliferation programs, including the Cooperative Threat Reduction Program and the Global Threat Reduction Initiative, have helped countries dismantle weapons, disband nuclear programs and safeguard remaining weapons and materials. However, over the past four years, U.S. Defense Nuclear Non-Proliferation program funding has declined.
The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation works to strengthen an international nuclear non-proliferation regime based on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), secure and reduce all vulnerable nuclear weapons-usable material throughout the world, and halt the spread of materials and weapons of mass destruction to state and non-state actors.
