guiding principles for eu disaster response
Guiding principles for EU Disaster Response

EU disaster response capacity should be built on the following principles:

  • be able to respond in a spirit of solidarity inside and outside EU.
  • address all types of disasters.
  • bring together different constituencies.
  • act IAW Internationally agreed humanitarian principles and guidelines.
  • improve EU coordination for helping the central coordinating role of UN.
  • work in Disaster prevention and preparedness as a strategy on disaster management.
  • a better pooling of assets in order to reduce costs and avoid duplication of efforts.
  • make use more of common assets by MS.
  • avoid creating new structures and additional levels of bureaucracy within EU.

Use of MS Military Assets in support to EU Disaster Response

Oslo Guidelines on use of MCDA in DR as developed in UN

HA in complex Emergencies reflect the following key

criteria/principles:

  • military assets and capabilities should be used as a “last resort” when civilian resources are overstretched or inadequate;
  • humanity, neutrality and impartiality, when delivering humanitarian assistance or emergency relief;
  • the complementary nature of military support to civilian efforts;
  • use of military assets and capabilities should be limited in time and focus on initial immediate relief, and should not extend to more structural support.
the eu mcda mechanisms
The EU MCDA Mechanisms

In 2006 EU Council agreed that:

"military assets and capabilities that were used in past disasters and that

would be likely to remain the main focus of potential military involvement in

the future include:

  • Strategic transport (air/sea);
  • Tactical transport (e.g. in-theatre use of helicopters);
  • Medical units and/or field hospitals;
  • Engineering capabilities;
  • Communication support;
  • CBRN capacities;
  • Search and Rescue;
  • Specialised military expertise and liaison capability;
  • Specific Maritime support."
