Preventing Nuclear Terrorism Through Global Nuclear Material Removals

The National Nuclear Security Administration’s efforts to prevent, counter and respond to the threats of nuclear proliferation and nuclear terrorism make a vital contribution to U.S. national security. NNSA helps make the world a safer place by removing or confirming the disposition of weapons-usable nuclear material from civilian sites across the globe, ensuring that these materials will never be used by terrorists to make a nuclear weapon.
