IPNDV Basic Scenario


Phase III of the International Partnership for Nuclear Disarmament Verification (IPNDV) is executing a multi-year program of work to further develop, test, evaluate, and refine concepts and practical verification approaches to support future nuclear disarmament. This program of work has used a basic scenario that describes a notional nuclear-armed state (Ipindovia) as well as its disarmament obligations under a multi-party Nuclear Weapons Reduction Treaty (NWRT). The NWRT also provides for the multilateral verification of those obligations.

This paper sets out the Basic Scenario and its assumptions.
