The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) released the unclassified version of its 2023 Strategy for Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD).

The 2023 DoD CWMD Strategy seeks to account for current and emerging WMD challenges and threats and provide tailored methods to address them. The Department will account for WMD threats holistically to prevent, mitigate, withstand, operate through, and recover from WMD attacks in close consultation with allies and partners.

“This Strategy lays the foundation for the Department to confront the complex and demanding challenges presented by WMD,” wrote Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin in the Secretary’s Foreword.
