Weekly Report

Deterrence

Russia’s Strategic Missile Force have put Topol and Yars road mobile ballistic missile launchers on combat patrols in six Russian regions. Mobility reduces their vulnerability to pre-emptive strike but may increase unreliability and inaccuracy. NATO is concerned about hybrid conventional-nuclear war at lower thresholds.

DPRK

World silence and ignorance ensures North Korea’s nuclear arsenal will grow and possibly grow rapidly. Kim Jong-un recently chaired an enlarged meeting of the Korean Workers Party and an enlarged meeting of North Korea’s Central Military Commission.

Governance

Environmental groups in China are bringing the first environmental damage lawsuit in the nation against four mining executives, a test of China’s amended environmental protection legislation that came into effect in January.

Climate change adaptation

Gender norms often exclude women from participating in decision-making and rule setting at various levels. Men’s and women’s priorities for adaptation are shaped by the existing norms, roles, and responsibilities and how adaptation strategies build on, ameliorate, or distort these.

About Nautilus

Our mission: WE HOLD THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO BUILD PEACE, CREATE SECURITY, AND RESTORE SUSTAINABILITY FOR ALL PEOPLE IN OUR TIME.

Since its founding in Berkeley, California in 1992, the Nautilus Institute has evolved into a thriving public policy think-tank and community resource. Along the way it has addressed critical security and sustainability issues such as the United States nuclear policy in Korea and the effect of the U.S.-China relationship on environmental insecurity. The Institute has built a reputation not only for innovative research and analysis of critical global problems, it also translates ideas into practical solutions, often with high impact.

The Institute convenes a community of scholars and practitioners who conduct research on strategies to solve interconnected global problems. Our Associates and Partners are located in Asia, North America, Europe, Australia and India. With our network of partner organizations and associates, we develop and apply these strategies to the linked threats of nuclear war, urban and energy insecurity, and climate change in the Asia Pacific region.

Nautilus encourages civil society to strengthen regional governance of these common problems and shared solutions.
