Tenth Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons

1 August - 26 August

Free

The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) is a landmark international treaty whose objective is to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology, to promote co-operation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy and to further the goal of achieving nuclear disarmament and general and complete disarmament. The NPT represents the only binding commitment in a multilateral treaty to the goal of disarmament by the nuclear-weapon States.

The provisional agenda, programme of work, preparatory documents, and registration information are available here: un.org/en/conferences/npt2020.
