Mission Statement

NTI's mission is to strengthen global security by reducing the risk of use and preventing the spread of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons. NTI seeks to raise public awareness, serve as a catalyst for new thinking and take direct action to reduce these threats.

Description

The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) is a charitable organization that was established in response to two central challenges: -Nuclear, biological and chemical weapons represent the world's single greatest threat. -There is an increasingly dangerous gap between the global threat and the global response. NTI is working to close the growing and increasingly dangerous gap between the threat from nuclear, biological and chemical weapons and the global response by: -Taking direct action to reduce the threat through start-up, pilot, and model initiatives that the government and private sector could replicate on a larger scale. -Encouraging others to take action to reduce the threat by being a catalyst for action, working to promote dialogue, building common ground, and increasing public awareness of the gaps between the threat and the response. These gaps include a gap in the way governments are organized to address the threat, a gap in resources and a gap in thinking about this issue.
