Our Impact

We are in a new and more dangerous era in which the likelihood of use of weapons of mass destruction is growing. NTI delivers innovative, real-world solutions that address these challenges and create lasting change for a positive future.

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.
