APPENDIX A:
STATEMENT OF TASK

The Overall Project

The U.S. National Academies and the Russian Academy of Sciences will engage in activities to support strengthening, accelerating, and expanding U.S.-Russian cooperation on nuclear nonproliferation. U.S. and Russian committees will collaboratively review the existing U.S.-Russian cooperative programs on protecting nuclear weapons, nuclear-weapon components and materials, nuclear-weapon-relevant technologies, and nuclear-weapon expertise and will make recommendations to their respective governments about how the scope, effectiveness, pace, and sustainability of these programs could be improved.


This Report

Among other activities, the committees will convene a joint workshop to identify methods of overcoming impediments to cooperation between the United States and Russia on nuclear nonproliferation. The workshop will emphasize approaches and techniques that have already been shown to work in U.S.-Russian programs and that might be applied in other areas. The workshop is intended to facilitate frank discussion between individuals in the United States and Russia who have some responsibility for cooperative nuclear nonproliferation programs in the hope of identifying both the impediments to cooperation and potential methods of addressing them. The report will summarize the discussions at the workshop.
