Scientific Advisory Group: Informal Intersessional Work

The First Meeting of States Parties decided to create a Scientific Advisory Group composed of 15 members, taking into account the need for a comprehensive spread of relevant fields of scientific and technological expertise, gender balance and equitable geographical distribution.  The Scientific Advisory Group will report to the second Meeting of States Parties on the status and developments regarding nuclear weapons, nuclear weapon risks, the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons, nuclear disarmament and related issues. By the second Meeting of States Parties, the Scientific Advisory Group will also identify and engage scientific and technical institutions in States parties and more broadly to establish a network of experts to support the goals of the Treaty.
