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.
