PROMOTING THE GLOBAL INSTRUMENTS OF NONPROLIFERATION AND DISARMAMENT
THE UNITED NATIONS AND THE NUCLEAR CHALLENGE
Durable peace and security cannot be achieved without sustainable development, and lasting development will not take place unless stability through trade and human exchanges are ensured. This full-day meeting will consider the linkages between security challenges and development objectives, focusing on how disarmament and non-proliferation can reinforce global economic development and sustainable growth. More specifically, it will tackle the challenges posed by the threat of proliferation of sensitive WMD technologies, addressing such questions as:
• How can we enhance the role of the United Nations in the sphere of disarmament and non-proliferation, particularly WMD non-proliferation?
• What are the challenges states face in fully implementing their international commitments? What technical assistance can be provided to address these challenges?
• How can we create innovative partnerships between non-proliferation instruments and other international, regional, and sub-regional organizations?
