PNND Update

Dear friends,

PNND has joined with the International Peace Bureau (a Nobel Peace Laureate organisation) and World Future Council to launch Move the Nuclear Weapons Money: A handbook for civil society and legislators

The book was released yesterday at an event at the Inter-Parliamentary Union 135th Assembly.

It includes background on nuclear weapons budgets, links between sustainable development goals and nuclear disarmament, and examples of actions by parliaments and cities in nuclear-armed and non-nuclear countries.

'Over $100 billion is spent annually on nuclear weapons – funds that are sorely needed to meet the SDGs,’ says Saber Chowdhury, IPU President.

Parliamentarians have a key role to play in setting budgets, developing policy and providing oversight on government investments. This handbook provides a guide for effective parliamentary action to invest in peace and sustainability rather than on maintaining the threat of nuclear war.’

The handbook also highlights ways in which legislators and civil society can cooperate - including with the SDG communities - to build the success of actions to move the nuclear weapons money.

Yours sincerely
