Weapons of Mass Destruction

Weapons of Mass Destruction

A weapon of mass destruction (WMD) is a weapon—be it nuclear, radiological, chemical, biological, or explosive—that can kill or injure large numbers of people or greatly damage the infrastructure of a country or region. RAND provides policymakers with objective guidance and recommendations to improve WMD preparedness, detection, and response, as well as international collaboration to counter WMD threats.
