The latest edition of Norwegian People’s Aid’s Nuclear Weapons Ban Monitor was launched on 29 March 2023. The report shows that as fear of nuclear war in 2022 surged to the highest levels since the Cold War, the global arsenal of nuclear weapons available for use by the armed forces of the nine nuclear-armed states has increased.
