Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism

The Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism (GICNT) was created in July 2006, and currently consists of 85 countries, including Canada, and four official observers:

The GICNT focuses on concrete operational-level cooperation among partners to strengthen global capacity to prevent, detect, and respond to nuclear terrorism rather than on developing new legal instruments or policies.

To date, GICNT partners have conducted over 50 multilateral activities and seven senior-level meetings in support of nuclear security objectives.

Canada joined as an initial partner nation.  Through the Weapons of Mass Destruction Threat Reduction Program we remain an active participant in GICNT events, including the Implementation and Assessment Group and annual plenary meetings.
