The president of the United States has a duty to keep Americans and the international community safe from nuclear and biological dangers. The global pandemic has shown the consequences of failing to anticipate, plan for, and prevent catastrophic events. And as NTI’s Ernest J. Moniz and former Senator Sam Nunn have written, “Not since the 1962 Cuban missile crisis has the risk of a U.S.-Russian confrontation involving the use of nuclear weapons been as high as it is today.”

A new presidential administration—whoever is elected—creates the opportunity to reset nuclear and biological policy. Two new papers from the Nuclear Threat Initiative outline recommendations for the next U.S. administration and Congress to confront and mitigate growing nuclear and biosecurity threats.
