ICAN funds for universalization activities 2021


Supporting Capacity Building and Advocacy Towards Universalization of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW)

The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons entered into force on 22 January 2021. Now, efforts must be made to grow the membership. Each additional state party will strengthen the norm against nuclear weapons and increase the future success of the treaty. 

The objective of this fund is to support specific and time-bound activities in 2021 aimed at encouraging and enabling national and regional progress towards universalizing the TPNW, ahead of the first meeting of states parties to be held in January 2022.
