Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons

122 nations adopted the International Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons at the United Nations in New York on 7/7/17. This Treaty finally and conclusively puts nuclear weapons into the same class of illegal and unacceptable weapons as chemical and biological weapons.

Along with landmines, cluster munitions and some other specific types of weapons, these weapons are banned because they can never be used without causing disproportionate and indiscriminate suffering to civilians. The detonation of even a single nuclear weapon, by accident or by design, would cause catastrophic humanitarian consequences. A war involving nuclear weapons could mean the end of human civilization as we know it.

There are many small and immediate steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of a nuclear war or accident, but the only way to reduce this risk to zero is to eliminate these weapons altogether from the face of the earth. This Treaty brings that day closer.
