Briefing on the Civil-Military Coordination Standards

On 23 September, CMCS hosted a second briefing to Defense Attachés and advisors from the Permanent Missions based in Geneva. The briefing focuses on a dedicated project to develop Humanitarian Civil-Military Coordination Standards . The origin of this project rests in a series of regional and thematic consultations undertaken in preparation of the World Humanitarian Summit, culminating in a side-event and support at the summit itself. Establishing standards represents a real opportunity to operationalize and bring currency to internationally agreed guidelines and guidance on civil-military interaction and the use of foreign military assets in humanitarian operations. The project is expected to conclude in time for the 2017 Humanitarian Networks and Partnership Week (HNPW).
