The Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism (GICNT) is an international partnership of 82 partner nations and four official observers. All partners have endorsed a set of core nuclear security principles encompassing the full spectrum of deterrence, prevention, detection, and response objectives. Through multilateral activities and exercises, partners share best practices and lessons learned in order to strengthen both individual and collective capabilities to combat the threat of nuclear terrorism. Since the inception of the GICNT, partners have conducted over 30 GICNT activities and five senior-level Plenary Meetings. These events have resulted in greater networking and transparency among the international community and in enhanced coordination within individual partner governments.
