Nonproliferation, Anti-terrorism, Demining, and Related Programs (NADR)
Program Description | NADR Budget Figures
- The Nonproliferation, Anti-terrorism, Demining, and Related Programs account provides resources to support security-related foreign policy objectives.
- The budget request maintains a $15 million funding level for the Nonproliferation and Disarmament Fund (NDF), a contingency fund for unanticipated requirements or opportunities in support of our nonproliferation objectives.
- The request includes $14 million for Export Control Assistance cooperation designed to strengthen national export control systems in key countries. A portion of this funding will support Expanded Threat Reduction Initiative-related activities in the NIS.
- The FY 2001 request of $47 million for a voluntary contribution to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will permit implementation of new, strengthened nuclear safeguards measures and allow a modest expansion in nuclear safety cooperation with the New Independent States and Eastern Europe.
- For the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) Preparatory Commission, the Administration is requesting $21.5 million in FY 2001 to pay the U.S. share of costs for the Provisional Technical Secretariat, including the development and implementation of the international monitoring system (IMS) to detect nuclear explosions.
- For the U.S. contribution to the Korean Peninsula Energy Development Organization (KEDO), $55 million is requested for administrative costs and heavy fuel oil (HFO) purchases in FY 2001. KEDO is responsible for implementing the Agreed Framework between the United States and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), by financing and constructing light water reactors in North Korea and for providing annual shipments of heavy fuel oil to the DPRK until completion of the first light water reactor.
- The request includes a significant increase for the Anti-terrorism Assistance (ATA) program to meet the widening terrorist threat. Of the $68 million total, $38 million will sustain a robust training component and $30 million will support establishment of a Center for Anti-terrorism and Security Training (CAST). The training component will support ongoing core ATA programs, increase training to select Balkan states, and fund the third phase of training for 12 country programs in Africa and the NIS. Funding for a single, dedicated training facility is essential to meet the current and projected increasing demands for ATA training.
- The Terrorist Interdiction Program request of $4 million will support the second year of a multi-pronged border security program designed to assist selected vulnerable countries in stopping terrorists from crossing their borders or using their territory as transit points or staging areas for attacks.
- The FY 2001 budget request sustains the Humanitarian Demining program at $40 million for humanitarian mine action initiatives in nearly 40 countries around the globe.
- For the Science Centers, the FY 2001 budget requests $45 million to finance civilian research by former Soviet weapons experts in Russia, the Ukraine, and the other NIS countries. It remains a key component of the Expanded Threat Reduction Initiative.
- The budget request includes $2 million to support the new Small Arms Destruction initiative, which is designed to eliminate stockpiles of excess small arms and light weapons left over from Cold War and post-Cold War conflicts, particularly in Eastern Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa.
