Improving security and stabilisation through environmental protection: NATO's role in facilitating the discussion
Preserving the environment during military operations can improve stabilisation and foster lasting security, a key condition for sustainable development. NATO's policy states that all member nations armed forces must respect environmental policies and principles under all conditions but they are only fully liable if they implement it into their own national law.
We had the exclusive opprtunity to meet Dr. Susanne Michaelis, Officer at the Emerging Security Challenges Division at NATO and speaker at the 2018 Military Engineering conference, to discuss the importance and challenges associated with environmental protection and security and NATO's role in greening defence around the world.
The number of casualties and injuries resulting from IEDs is currently decreasing in countries under the U.S Central Command's authority but are increasing in Afghanistan. Cheap, unpredictable and extremely lethal, IEDs quickly became the weapon of choice for insurgents during the Afghan war.
Ahead of the annual Military Engineering conference (27th - 1st March), Defence IQ compiled information from a wide range of sources on the three lessons we can learn from the ongoing IED threat in Afghanistan.
Senior military logisticians and engineers will be in London from 27 Feb-1 Mar 2018 for Combat Support Week - the only event providing the military with strategies to enable end-to-end mission support and rapid deployment in austere and contested operational environments.
The co-located Military Engineering and Defence Supply Chain Logistics conferences will integrate a collaborative, end-to-end approach to combat support through joint-force panels, industry case studies and shared networking sessions. Download the brochure for more information.
