[Question] What actions would obviously decrease x-risk?

Con­sider all the ac­tions pos­si­ble to­mor­row, which in­di­vi­d­u­als or groups could take. Are there any which would “ob­vi­ously” (mean­ing: you be­lieve it with high prob­a­bil­ity, and you ex­pect that be­lief to be un­con­tro­ver­sial) re­sult in de­creased x-risk?

(For ex­am­ple, con­sider re­duc­ing the size of Rus­sia and the US’s nu­clear stock­piles. I’m cu­ri­ous if this is on the list.)

(I in­clude “which in­di­vi­d­u­als or groups” could take be­cause I am in­ter­ested in what ac­tions we could take if we all co­or­di­nated perfectly. For ex­am­ple, nei­ther Rus­sia nor the US can unilat­er­ally re­duce both their stock­piles, and per­haps it would in­crease x-risk for one of them to lower only theirs, but the group con­sist­ing of US and Rus­sia’s gov­ern­ment could the­o­ret­i­cally agree to lower both stock­piles.)
