VERTIC in conjunction with The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) held the 1st Workshop within the Project ‘Building Capacity on Multilateral Verification of Nuclear Disarmament’ on November 25-26.

Such a project focuses on harnessing, developing, and sustaining expertise and capacity on nuclear disarmament verification (NDV) in regions around the world. This work will complement the efforts being undertaken in Kazakhstan to engage in research and development activities on nuclear disarmament verification as well as support Kazakhstan’s participation in official fora such as UNGA and the Group of Governmental Experts on the role of verification to advance nuclear disarmament and other international initiatives. Representatives from the Kazakhstan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Nuclear Technology and Safety Centre, the National Nuclear Centre, academia and NGOs as well as other international experts took part in the workshop.
