Counter proliferation programme

Programme objectives for 2016 to 2017.



The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) plays an important role in the UK’s work to stop the spread of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) weapons. One of the tools used to combat these threats is the Counter-Proliferation Programme. This funding is used to support projects around the world which strengthen political will or technical capacity to tackle the threat of weapons proliferation.

All projects funded contribute to achieving one or more of the programme’s objectives.
