VERTIC and NPS Global host third online workshop on building capacity for nuclear disarmament verification

On April 15 VERTIC and the NPS Global Foundation hosted the third online workshop of a series of four within the Project Building Capacity on Multilateral Verification of Nuclear Disarmament.

Such a project focuses on harnessing, developing, supporting and sustaining expertise and capacity on nuclear disarmament verification (NDV) in regions around the world. The third online meeting featured inter alia a presentation on the UKNI and QUAD nuclear disarmament verification partnership delivered by personnel from the Norwegian Defense Research Establishment and a study on the disposition of weapons-usable fissile material which addressed ways to employ Latin America’s expertise on safeguards for the verification of nuclear disarmament.

The meeting was attended by diplomats and experts from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay and organisations such as ABACC, OPANAL and UNRILEC.
