ESB’s Civil Military Coordination Section (CMCS) participated in the execution phase of the NATO TRIDENT JAGUAR 17 (TRJR 17) exercise for the 1 German/Netherlands Corps (1GNC) in Stavanger, Norway (3-6 April) and the Rapid Reaction Corps France (RRC-Fr) in Sliven, Bulgaria (14 to 17 March).  As the custodian of internationally-recognized guidelines that seek to preserve the impartiality, neutrality and operational independence of humanitarian actors, participating in NATO exercises is vital for the section.
