PNND Update


Dear friends,

Join us in Dhaka, Bangladesh from April 6-7 for the PNND Assembly 2017.

The assembly comes at a time of increasing threats from nuclear weapons, causing the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists to last month move the Doomsday Clock to 2.5 Minutes to Midnight.

But it is also a time of nuclear disarmament opportunities. The UN General Assembly has just  commenced negotiations on a global treaty to ban nuclear weapons. And in 2018, the UN will convene a High Level Conference on Nuclear Disarmament, similar to very successful UN high level conferences that adopted the Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris agreement on Climate Change and the New York Declaration on Refugees and Migrants.
Bangladesh Parliament in Dhaka.
The PNND Assembly is this year being held in Dhaka, immediately following the 136th Session of the Inter Parliamentary Union (IPU) Assembly. PNND will participate in the IPU Assembly in order to help implement their nuclear disarmament resolution of 2014. 

The PNND Assembly will include:
  • An international conference on current nuclear threats, disarmament initiatives and the role of parliamentarians;
  • A special forum for youth to engage with parliamentarians;
  • Adoption of a Global Parliamentary Action Plan for a Nuclear-Weapon-Free World;
  • PNND Council meeting to appoint PNND leadership and adopt PNND program of activities;
  • Special public events.
For further information and to register please contact info@pnnd.org

Yours sincerely
