This report addresses the urgent need within the UN system to give higher priority to nonproliferation and disarmament, and to build a consensus on these issues. The Blue Paper lays out recommendations on how to (1) take concrete steps to restore trust in international instruments; (2) begin consultations among the five permanent members of the UN Security Council on nuclear issues; (3) anticipate future challenges; (4) improve transparency and trust; and (5) promote progress through incentives.
