From May 2nd to 4th 2017, NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Transformation and the Mayor of Norfolk hosted a conference examining “Interdependency in Resilience”, supported by leaders from 34 NATO and EU nations and more than 30 private sector partners. The conference improved understanding and visibility of what resilience means across the civil, private and military sectors; established knowledge transfer and developed actionable proposals to improve mutual collaboration to help build resilience.
The conference paper, entitled ‘Building resilience – Collaborative proposals to help nations and partners’ has now been published. It identifies tangible proposals to help build Alliance resilience, strengthening and expanding the ongoing work by NATO and furthering cooperation with the EU. The proposals operationalise the four key themes identified by the conference and widen the aperture on how our nations and partners build resilience through trusted collaboration.
Both Allied Command Transformation and the City of Norfolk hope these proposals will act as a catalyst for the civil, private and military sectors to intensify their collaboration and help nations and partners build resilience.
OAKAS Ltd supported Allied Command Transformation and the City of Norfolk to analyse the conference outcomes and initial development of the conference paper.
