Assistance Support Initiative

Find Support for UNSCR 1540 Implementation
Keeping the most dangerous weapons out of the worst hands by connecting assistance providers with states that need it
Project Info

When the UN mandated strict new controls on chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, related materials, and their means of delivery, the goal was ensuring terrorists and others could not use them. But dozens of countries have struggled to keep tabs on these dangerous materials and have found it difficult to navigate the maze of nonproliferation assistance programs that could help. The Assistance Support Initiative’s database of 1540 assistance funding is a unique tool for states which need help to find it.


This database contains many projects and programs available to help achieve compliance with United Nations Security Council Resolution 1540, which states that countries will combat the spread of chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, their means of delivery and illicit trafficking in related materials within or across their borders. This database also includes programs preventing proliferation of radiological weapons.
