NTI Vice President Laura Holgate Highlights Continued Radiological Security Efforts at the Global Partnership

NTI Vice President Laura S.H. Holgate highlighted NTI’s efforts to sustain progress securing and eliminating radiological sources during a Feb. 7 presentation to the working group meeting of the Global Partnership Against the Spread of Weapons of Materials of Mass Destruction (Global Partnership) in Paris, France. In her remarks to the Global Partnership’s Nuclear and Radiological Security Working Group, Holgate also emphasized the need for global cooperation on radiological security. “As the threat of radiological terrorism persists, cooperative and inclusive engagement must remain a high priority for governments, industry, and civil society – from the boardroom to the blood bank” she said.

NTI’s efforts include a new radiological resources collection featured on NTI’s website and continued engagement with regional partners on radiological security best practices, as summarized the recent report, Sustainable Security of Radioactive Sources in Central Asia.

The Global Partnership is an initiative between 30 countries, the European Union, and international organizations that work together to prevent the proliferation of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons, and related materials.
