Voices from Pacific Island Countries

Voices from Pacific Island Countries

The APLN project "Nuclear Disarmament and the Anthropocene" amplifies voices from Pacific Island Countries that highlight the inequities and injustices of nuclear weapons policies and practices that exacerbate existential risks, including climate change. Together with other individuals, international organizations, and civil society groups across the Pacific Islands, we hope to raise global awareness of the shared responsibility to address human and environmental security challenges in the region.
