Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

While the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is the major framework for international co-operation on climate change, a variety of clean energy and climate efforts have formed. One such effort is the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM), which has become the leading ministerial forum for issues of global clean energy deployment. The U.S. hosted the original meeting of the CEM in 2010 and also hosted CEM7 in 2016. Over a decade after its inception, the 13th CEM meeting in 2022 will again be held in the U.S., this time hosted by Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm. Three years ago, ministers from the U.S., Japan, and Canada established, under CEM, the Nuclear Innovation Clean Energy Future (NICE Future) initiative, which highlights the various roles nuclear energy can play in clean energy systems today and in the future. NICE Future currently has 13 participant countries and 17 partner organizations. Attendees will hear from those engaged with NICE Future about the history of the CEM talks, the evolution of the nuclear energy conversation within the CEM, and recent reflections by policymakers on accelerated pathways to net zero using nuclear innovation.
