The Nuclear Threat Initiative protects lives, livelihoods, the environment and quality of life now and for future generations.
Every day, we address the growing risk of catastrophic attacks with weapons of mass destruction and disruption—nuclear, biological, radiological, chemical and cyber.
How We Make an Impact
NTI designs innovative threat-reduction projects that show governments the way and build momentum and support for action.
We work with presidents and prime ministers, scientists and technicians, educators and students, and people from around the world. We collaborate with partners worldwide. And we use our voice to raise awareness and advocate for creative solutions.

Founded in 2001 by former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn and philanthropist Ted Turner, NTI is guided by a prestigious, international board of directors and a high-level advisory board. Sam Nunn is chief executive officer, and Joan Rohlfing serves as president. We rely on the generosity of donors to support our work.
The dangers posed by weapons of mass destruction and disruption are among the most consequential facing the United States and the world. Reducing these dangers is challenging work. NTI is making a difference.
