Priorities for the Biden-Harris Administration and Congress to Reduce Nuclear and Biological Threats

Save to My Resources

Two new papers from the Nuclear Threat Initiative offer detailed recommendations for the Biden-Harris transition and the new Congress to confront and mitigate growing nuclear and biosecurity threats and reset U.S. nuclear and biological policy.

“For many Americans, the use of a nuclear weapon—by the United States, other nations, or terrorists, or because of a terrible accident or miscalculation—may be as hard to imagine today as a world devastated by a global pandemic was before COVID-19 struck,” Reducing Nuclear Risks: An Urgent Agenda for 2021 and Beyond states. “But as with global health threats, nuclear risks have been on the rise for years. Over the course of the next four years, it will be incumbent upon our nation’s president to address those risks to keep Americans and the global community safe.”

Preventing the Next Global Biological Catastrophe recommends that the United States “support and fund new global platforms and capabilities to improve pandemic preparedness, reduce biotechnology risks, and decrease the likelihood of a globally catastrophic biological event.”
