Nevada-Semipalatinsk was established in 1989 when 5,000 people filled the hall of the Writers' Union in Almaty to hear Kazak poet O. Suleymenov denounce nuclear testing and call for a public meeting the next day. Since then, the movement has contributed to the suspension of nuclear testing in the area, fostered links with international organizations that oppose nuclear testing, and launched an investigation into the level of radiation sickness in the area.

A print version of much of the information contained in this Central Asian Third Sector Organizations section can be found in Civil Society in Central Asia (Seattle: University of Washington Press, 1999).
