Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)
The WMD Project assesses the baseline status of and trends in vertical and horizontal proliferation of WMD across the Asia Pacific region; focusing on where wars involving WMD might begin, while examining how asymmetric force structures and future proliferation may increase the risk of using WMD, especially nuclear weapons, in each conflict.
