Vienna 2014 - New York 2015: Looking Backward & Looking ForwardOn December 8th & 9th 2014, 158 Governments (including Australia) met in Vienna to discuss the consequences of the use of nuclear weapons.
The agenda paid much attention to accidental nuclear war, probabilistic risk analysis, and to the global climatic consequences of large-scale nuclear war.
The official intergovernmental meeting was attended by over 1000 NGOs and diplomats and held in the same room as that in which the Treaty of Vienna that ended the Napoleonic wars had been negotiated in 1815. It was preceded by an ICAN conference attended by around 900 civil society representatives.
