Our Work to Reduce Nuclear Weapon Risks

Our Impact Model

NTI’s Impact Model drives our work to create the necessary systemic change for a safer world by galvanizing large-scale institutional adoption of proven global security practices and programs.

Our expert analysis shines a bright light on critical security gaps and generates actionable threat-reduction solutions. By stimulating the collective self-interest of government and private-sector forces around the world, NTI then cultivates collaboration and momentum around those solutions. These partnerships forge pilot initiatives that demonstrate and de-risk proposals to catalyze large-scale, enduring institutional adoption.
