Conflict & Regional Security

Special challenges arise when nuclear weapons and conventional conflict intersect. Ploughshares Fund seeks to address the unique risks of situations in which escalation of conventional conflict could lead to the use or loss of control of nuclear weapons. Ploughshares Fund's targeted efforts aim to resolve conflict and build civil society engagement in affected areas. 

Currently, this portfolio focuses on two geographic regions: South Asia and the Middle East. Ploughshares Fund's South Asia funding strategy to date has focused on investments that can help create the long-term regional security conditions necessary for Pakistan and India to reduce their nuclear arsenals. Our current Middle East funding strategy aims to invest in projects that address the underlying regional security issues and advance nonproliferation and disarmament in the Middle East.
