Last week was Naval Humanitarian Assistance/Disaster Relief (HA/DR) week at the Center for International Maritime Security (CIMSEC). CIMSEC featured a variety of different articles from experts grappling with the complexity of managing all of the moving parts related to HA/DR missions. A climate-changing world is adding another layer of stress and complexity to these missions, as well as adding incentives to continue to improve prevention, preparedness and response coordination between civilian and military counterparts. Below is a list of articles published by CIMSEC. Worth a read.
