United nations office for disarmament affairs
nuclear proliferation in the 21st century
Equity Note: Due to the sensitive and contemporary nature of the war in Ukraine, we discourage delegates from discussing it in committee. If it is mentioned, it will not become a debate topic. Parotting of misinformation regarding the war, as well as denial of established and proven facts is prohibited.
The United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA) contributes to international norm-setting efforts pertaining to disarmament through frameworks established by the General Assembly and its First Committee (Disarmament and International Security), the Disarmament Commission, the Conference on Disarmament and other bodies. Committed to building disarmament measures before, during and after conflict through dialogue and transparency, UNODA focuses on improving the accessibility of objective information on multilateral disarmament issues. With the rapid rise of nuclear forces in recent years, nuclear proliferation has become one of UNODA’s primary concerns, especially with regards to the undisclosed nuclear expansion programs developed by various countries across the globe. The Office must therefore promote goals of nuclear disarmament and nonproliferation to limit the danger posed by these weapons of mass destruction to humanity.
