Newly arising security challenges are critical to the operations and performance improvement within Crisis Management and Disaster Response domain. Furthermore, a more adaptive and comprehensive approach towards the new security challenges is needed.

 

The CMDR COE has scheduled to conduct for the next year the 11th Annual Conference, one of the capstone events planned in POW 2023. It is to take place from 31 May to 01 June 2023 in Sofia, Bulgaria. The event is a platform for interaction and exchange among the CMDR community of interest SMEs from NATO, NATO Allies and Partners and participating organizations. The event focuses on the evolving security environment and the multiple challenges of distinct origin we have to meet, further examined in specialized panels. The conference will discuss the potential adaptive and comprehensive approach towards the arising security challenges in the Crisis Management and Disaster Response domain.
