Preventing and Detecting Nuclear Proliferation

Building capacity and promoting partnerships

Ending the spread of nuclear weapons and materials requires that technological understanding works hand-in-hand with policy action and diplomacy. NTI works in all three areas to verifiably prevent nuclear proliferation.

Our collaborations with partners builds capacity and generates new dialogue that yields innovative solutions.

As demand for nuclear energy grows, the world needs a comprehensive nuclear fuel cycle that reduces proliferation risks and fosters responsible nuclear energy growth. NTI works with governments and industry to identify and implement new approaches to the nuclear fuel cycle that help improve governance.

We also work with partners on cutting-edge efforts to use new technologies, such as machine learning, to detect sophisticated efforts to obscure proliferation activities.


NTI’s projects aim to stimulate the collective self-interest of governments and the private sector to adopt innovative solutions to protect global security and peaceful uses of nuclear energy.
