From 19 to 23 March 2018 the CMDR COE successfully conducted this year’s iteration of Crisis Management and Disaster Response Course.
The attendees were acquainted to NATO Crisis Management, NATO Crisis Response System, and its complementary elements - NATO Crisis Response Process, Civil Emergency Planning, and Operations Planning.
