Humanitarian Civil-Military Coordination

Humanitarian Civil-Military Coordination

Tags : 

In major emergencies or conflict situations, a variety of individuals, groups and organizations provide assistance to people affected by the crisis, including military and security forces.

The attached Humanitarian Civil-Military Coordination Guide was developed specifically for the military to:

  1. Provide an overview of humanitarian action and the related principles (Chapter I);
  2. Introduce the various humanitarian actors and their mandates (Chapter II);
  3. Explain what they do and how they coordinate (Chapter III);
  4. Outline their security mechanisms (Chapter IV); and
  5. Highlight how the military can best interact with, support and complement humanitarian assistance (Chapters V).
