18 September 2018 – Almaty, Kazakhstan – Access to a new resource has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) related to solving global problems. The new resource is titled “The ATOM project - Stop nuclear weapons testing”, by from the Nazarbayev Center and published on the website in 2018.

The ATOM Project was launched on August 29, 2012, as an initiative to ban the global testing of nuclear weapons and its total destruction by all countries. The ATOM Project informs the world about the catastrophic humanitarian and environmental impacts of nuclear weapons on the example of Kazakhstan. In which from 1947 to 1991, 456 nuclear explosions were conducted at the Semipalatinsk polygon. One of the goals of the project, anyone on the Earth who opposes nuclear weapons, will be able to subscribe to an online petition calling on the governments of the world to abandon nuclear tests forever.

On the ATOM project website you can see the chronology of the world's nuclear weapons testing. In particular, it is told about the Kazakhstan way for building a nuclear safe world. Also it is told that Kazakhstan took a voluntary decision to abandon a nuclear arsenal including 1,216 nuclear charges for intercontinental ballistic missiles, which had no analogues in the world. And of course the project describes the President of Kazakhstan, Nazarbayev, as a leader in nuclear disarmament opposing the threat of a Third World War.
