ADVISORY: Nuclear Materials Security Index to Launch
Jan. 10, 2012
Launch of the Nuclear Threat Initiative’s (NTI) Nuclear Materials Security Index, a first-of-its-kind, public baseline assessment of the status of nuclear materials security conditions in 176 countries.
The NTI Index, prepared with the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), was created to spark an international discussion about priorities required to strengthen security and, most important, to encourage governments to provide assurances and take actions to reduce risks.
At the news conference, NTI and EIU will release the full results of the Index, including country summaries, findings and recommendations.
Former Senator Sam Nunn, Co-Chairman, NTI

the Nuclear Threat
Reducing the risk of nuclear use by terrorists and nation-states requires a broad set of complementary strategies targeted at reducing state reliance on nuclear weapons, stemming the demand for nuclear weapons and denying organizations or states access to the essential nuclear materials, technologies and know-how.
