The Nuclear Threat Initiative, a longtime grantee of Carnegie Corporation of New York, has released the NTI Nuclear Materials Security Index, which was featured in a report and an op-ed piece by The New York Times, and an op-ed piece by theWashington Post. It provides a first-of-its kind look at the security of nuclear materials in 176 countries and includes an international ranking system. The report found that seven nations have removed all or most of their stocks of weapons-usable nuclear materials from their territories. Despite progress, the report says the global community must demand an effective and accountable system for securing nuclear materials to protect the world from catastrophic nuclear terrorism. Read the report.
