Global Nexus Initiative
Where Climate, Nuclear, and Security Meet
The complex challenges posed by climate change, energy demand, and global security require a new level of real-world collaboration and innovative policy solutions. Therefore, two non-traditional stakeholders - the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) and the Partnership for Global Security (PGS) - have jointly created the Global Nexus Initiative (GNI). The GNI will explore the linkages among climate change, nuclear power, and global security issues with the goal of crafting realistic and actionable policy solutions that will ensure the safe and secure use of existing and new nuclear energy sources, support economic vitality, and protect people and the environment.
